Jared Cunningham 'kisses the sky' on dunk

By Diamond Leung

Oregon State guard Jared Cunningham's run-and-jump ability has been hidden for long enough in Corvallis.

The put-back dunk Cunningham unleashed in Sunday night's upset of Arizona caused an announcer to scream about the sophomore kissing the sky, the school to send out an e-mail declaring him the best player you've never heard of, and also elicited this video reaction on KVAL-TV from coach Craig Robinson.



Cunningham also leads the team in points (13.8 per game), leads the Pac-10 in steals (3.2 per game), and tied a school record with 34 consecutive free throws Sunday night.

But it's the dunk that his newfound fans across the nation will likely remember most.
