Nubian Spann dunk

Very rarely do you see a high school basketball player capable of shattering a backboard with a dunk, let alone doing that in the flow of an actual game. On Friday night it actually happened.

Nubian Spann, a senior at Panther Creek High School in Cary, North Carolina, raced down the left side of the floor during the second quarter of a game against Apex High School. He took a perfect lob from Juan Munoz, and threw the ball down with authority.

Immediately the left side of the backboard shattered, and then the glass on the right side fell to the floor as well. As would be expected, the crowd went absolutely nuts.

The game had to be postponed as a result of the dunk. Panther Creek leads 20-14 with 6:54 to go in the second quarter and the game will be resumed from that point when it is restarted.

Want to know the craziest part of all of this? It was Spann’s first dunk in a high school game.

Video of the dunk is below:

  2. What happens at these high school games when this happens? Are the games cancelled? Postponed? or do most high schools have a replacement backboard on hand? That seems to be a real psin in the rear for the team traveling far for a game.

  3. They usually postpone them and pick them up from where they stopped.
