Oregon's Dillon Brooks Submits Entry for Worst Flop Ever

Zac WassinkFeatured ColumnistJanuary 27, 2017

Give Oregon Ducks guard Dillon Brooks credit for possibly committing the worst flop in basketball history. 

With roughly eight minutes left to play in Thursday's game between Oregon and the Utah Utes at the Jon M. Huntsman Center, Utah guard Sedrick Barefield dribbled toward the paint when he was picked up by Brooks.

Brooks bumped Barefield, and the Oregon player then attempted to buy a call from the official by stopping a few feet away from his opponent, launching his body backward, hopping on one foot and then falling to the court. 

None of that worked, however, as Brooks was called for the foul. 

This is as bad as any soccer dive you'll ever see, maybe worse. We hope the Academy gives this young man an Oscar.
