It was only the first half when Colorado School of Mines junior Trevor Wages’ forceful dunk ended their game against Metro State.
Wages took a pass and slam dunked the ball, shattering the back board in the process. The rim hung loose from the baskets frame. The RMAC matchup was forced to be postponed.
“I just never thought I’d actually do that,” Wages said on 9NEWS just a few hours after dismantling the rim from its hinges. “I was watching a video on SportsCenter a month ago [of Pittsburgh's Jerome Lane backboarding smashing dunk], so I was just thinking to myself, ‘There is no way I’ll ever do that.’”
