A Division II college basketball game between Colorado School of Mines and No. 1 Metro State University of Denver was postponed Friday night after a player shattered the backboard with a dunk. Colorado Mines junior center Trevor Wages, who averages 16.6 points and 9.7 rebounds per game, broke the backboard with a powerful dunk in the first half. Wages gave off some primal screams after shattering the glass, which left broken pieces everywhere. “I didn’t believe it until I landed,” Wages told News 9 in Denver. “I was just stoked about the dunk and then all of a sudden I look back and it’s hanging down. I just started screaming.” The school was unable to replace the backboard immediately, so the game was postponed until 7:00 p.m. Sunday evening. Metro State will be leading 21-16 with 6:44 left in the first half when play resumes, the school said. At least Wages didn’t end up bloodied after breaking the backboard like this fella did.
