Whenever you hear about a broken backboard, you imagine a ferocious dunk—not a miss.

Against Wheelock on Tuesday, UMass Lowell forward Dontavious Smith had a clear path to the rim and went up strong.

The backboard shattered…but the ball popped out, robbing Smith of a career highlight.

If it's any consolation, he did get high-fives from many on the court, including his opponents.
