    Oklahoma / Gonzaga Backboard Shattered

    OU was going for an alley-oop and the ball got deflected and the post player for Oklahoma grabbed ahold of the rim before falling to the floor and the backboard just completely shattered.

    It's on ESPN2. They went to ESPN News for a while now though because it's going to be about a 30 minute delay. Hilarious stuff.

    That's weird that they don't have a breakaway rim to prevent that. Also weird that they don't have a backup hoop in case of something catastrophic.


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    I'm pretty sure they do. They have to clean up the glass, wheel the old basket out, wheel the new one in, put the Shot Clock on top. They were also giving each team 8 minutes to warm up.


    42-54 Record in CF Mafia. The most games played and wins by any player in Cyclone Fanatic History. Yes, I'm a nerd.

    Gotcha, I just knew it wouldn't take a full 30 mins to do that. 20 or so though, still longer than it should take, I can see.

    I'm dating myself, but remember the days before break away rims. Used to happen a lot in those days.

    yeah, I'm still wondering about what happened here as far as the rim.
