No one was injured
At a recent basketball game between Northern Illinois and Central Michigan, spectators saw something pretty rare: the entire hoop and the supporting structure came tumbling down.
Northern Illinois’s Pete Rakocevic was barreling toward the hoop and sunk a two-handed dunk. The crowd cheered, but then the backboard began to fall just moments later. It nearly collapsed onto a Central Michigan player, who managed to move out of the way with just a second to spare.
As CBS Sports points out, this could have caused some serious injuries. Luckily, everyone was okay.
