Colorado Mines Orediggers center Trevor Wages broke the backboard with a slam dunk in the first quarter of Friday night's game against in-state rival Metro State. The backboard was unable to be repaired, game has been re-scheduled for Sunday night.  Metro State leads the game, 21-16. Nobody had any scotch tape to fix the backboard so game has been re-scheduled for Sunday night at 7pm with Metro State leading 21-16. — Drew Soicher (@DrewSoicher) February 9, 2013 The School of Mines plays in the NCAA Division II Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference.  The Orediggers are 11-8 this season, while Metro State is 19-0.

  • This is gettig old. Need to go back to the old rule where if you touch the rim itself it's a techincal foul.
  • was he tee'd for grabbing the rim?
    what was funny was the way he strutted around like a banty rooster. sure this isn't an 8th grade game?
  • Great job moron. Any fat baby huey can hang on a rim and break it. Then he is proud of what he did....

    Nice job moron, now you can't finish the game.
  • Any moron can break a backboard if he hangs on too the rim. All breaking one proves is your stupidity
  • Dude, you don't have to act tough hanging on a rim..,That was stupid
  • Hey, Yardbarker get rid of these morons trying to advertize on here.
  • Clearly there was a walk on this play. Neither referee called the travel?
