Oregon State Player shatters Backboard

Published on July 6, 2011 by Scott Shirley   ·   1 Comment

Oregon State usually doesn’t make headlines in college basketball, but you need to check this video out. The Oregon State men’s basketball recently took an overseas trip to Macedonia where they played some pickup basketball games. The team was over there for “Beavers Without Borders” which is in the same line of Habitat for Humanity.

During one of the games, Oregon State’s Roberto Nelson went up for a dunk and shattered the backboard in the process. He broke his nose when this happened.

Check out the video of the Dunk here. (dunk takes place at about 2:15)

Hey now, Nelson has something in common with Shaq, not to many people have shattered a backboard. The backboard at the gym probably wasn’t that strong but still that is pretty impressive. Nelson averaged 7.5 points per game last year as a freshman; will it give him a big boost for this year’s college basketball season?

Nelson recalls what happened.

“I don’t know how the freaking rim broke. “It broke on the way up. I barely touched it and the whole thing just popped. I don’t know, maybe I’m strong. Maybe I can say I’m strong because I broke a rim. Not a Fisher Price one. It’s just crazy, man.”
