WATCH: Oklahoma’s Jordan Shepherd throws down two nasty dunks

March has arrived, and so has sophomore guard Jordan Shepherd.

In the first half of Oklahoma’s first-round game against Rhode Island, the 6-foot-2 Shepherd had a pair of incredible dunks. No, seriously. They would’ve made Dick Vitale jump out of his seat.

On the first dunk, freshman guard Trae Young found Shepherd cutting toward the basket and he finished at the rim with authority.

However, he wasn’t finished.

Shepherd, who’s mostly been overshadowed by Young all season, continued to steal the show with a put-back dunk a few minutes later.

Shepherd is only averaging 2.3 points per game, but he’s been a human highlight-reel so far in his NCAA-Tournament debut.

The Sooners are trying to advance to the Round of 32. If Oklahoma can beat Rhode Island, it will face the winner of Duke-Iona on Saturday in Pittsburgh, Pa.

This story will be updated.
