Former Syracuse Orange star Andy Rautins showcased his elite shooting skills Wednesday in Reno, as he won the NBA D-League Three-Point Shootout.

Rautins plays for the Oklahoma City Thunder's D-League team, the Tulsa 66ers, and he represented the organization superbly as he took home the long-range shooting hardware.

He's having a solid season for the 66ers, averaging 11.1 points per game and 39 percent from distance. Highlights include 6-of-10 three-point shooting against the Rio Grande Valley Vipers and a 21-point barrage against the Sioux Falls Skyforce.

Orange fans are familiar with Rautins' three-point exploits, dropping 282 triples in his Syracuse career. He's second in school history in three-point makes, trailing only Gerry McNamara.

Here's a clip of his shootout-excellence from Wednesday. You can watch the contest in its entirety Friday at 7 p.m. ET on the CBS Sports Network.
