February Madness extends to the second division as well, it seems. The quarterfinals of the NBV Cup, a regional tourney in Germany, were brought to an abrupt halt on Sunday when the spirit of Darryl Dawkins was exhumed dramatically.
With BTB Royals Oldenburg up 15-14 on SC Norderstedt after about five minutes of play, Stefan Groothoff found himself with quite the opportunity to slam down a couple more points. Of course, as someone once said, “that s*** was *too* easy” and the result was a literal explosion of glass as the backboard is utterly exterminated.
The Royals have announced that the team coaches have agreed to replay the game, which was stopped after Groothoff’s destruction; the team also announced that Groothoff was treated at a hospital for various cuts and abrasions directly after the game.
And now witness the awesomeness.
