Twenty-six years after Gary Payton notched the first triple double for the Oregon State men’s basketball program, his son Gary Payton II became the second player in school history to record the feat.

The younger Payton had 10 points, 12 rebounds, and 10 assists in the Beavers’ 71-43 romp over Grambling State on Monday night at Gill Coliseum. He also had six steals.

His father, the former Sonics All-Star, did it first on Nov. 29, 1988 when he had 20 points, 14 assists, and 10 rebounds against Portland. The Hall of Famer reached out via social media to his son.

Here’s the younger Payton’s highlights from Monday.

Keep in mind Grambling State (2-6) visits No. 16 Washington (8-0) on Wednesday and the Huskies have a pair of triple-double candidates in guard Nigel Williams-Goss and center Robert Upshaw.

TUESDAY MORNING LINKS:

— ICYMI, nice story about the meteoric rise from humble basketball beginnings on Eastside Catholic standout Matisse Thybulle, who signed to play at Washington next season.

— And here’s Thybulle’s 360-dunk from last Friday’s game that went viral.

Stanley Johnson is the real deal. The freshman forward is the leading scorer for the third-ranked Arizona Wildcats.

— After sitting out nine games due to NCAA transfer rules, Savon Goodman will make his debut at Arizona State on Tuesday against Marquette. The 6-6 forward is a former four-star high school recruit who started his career at UNLV where he averaged 3.6 points and 2.4 rebounds in nine minutes.

— Utah guard Delon Wright won the Pac-12 Player of the Week award after averaging 20.5 points and 8.0 rebounds during a two-game split on last week’s road trip.

— Here’s a preview of Tuesday’s game between No. 15 Oklahoma and Oral Roberts. The Sooners (6-2) face UW on Saturday in Las Vegas.
