Friday night, while the snowstorm halted any sort of activity in the northeast, Trevor Wages, a junior center for the Colorado School of Mines delayed a Division II game after shattering a backboard.
In the first half of the Mines’ game against Metro State, the 6-foot-9 junior center threw down a dunk, breaking the backboard, causing the game to be postponed until Sunday with Metro State leading 21-16.
“I didn’t believe it until I landed,” Wages told 9News.com following the dunk. “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.
“I was thinking, ‘Are we going to be able to play the rest of the game,'” added Wages. “Those kinds of plays get you pumped. We had the momentum; you don’t want to stop playing. It was an awesome experience but I wish we could still be playing.”
Wages is tied for the team-high in points per game at 16.6. He leads the team in rebounds with 9.7 per contest.
Colorado School of Mines is currently 11-8.
