Siena Freshman Breaks Backboard After Reverse Slam in Warm-Ups

Tyler Brooke@TylerDBrookeSenior Analyst IIJanuary 17, 2015


Backboards nationwide should tremble before the might of Siena Saints freshman Willem Brandwijk.

Prior to Friday's game against Canisius, Brandwijk decided to throw down a reverse slam dunk in warm-ups. The force of his jam caused the basket to collapse, which led to the backboard shattering.

MBB: Willem Brandwijk just did this to the backboard at the Koessler Center with 2-hand pregame reverse jam. http://t.co/Xfl1R12fAe

Unfortunately for Siena, that was the highlight of the night. The Saints came away with a rough 83-49 loss, dropping them to 6-10 on the year. Brandwijk finished with one point on 0-of-4 shooting and eight rebounds in 25 minutes.
