On Tuesday, UMASS– Lowell’s Dontavious Smith did his best “SEND IT IN, JEROME!!!” impression from the 1980’s when the Pittsburgh Panthers Forward Jerome Lane posterized some poor, innocent soul and shattered the backboard during a dunk:


Dontavious didn’t dunk on anybody from Wheelock College, UML’s opponent … nor did he technically dunk at all … but, he did shatter the backboard into 1000 pieces — something us basketball fans haven’t seen televised live in what seems like an eternity.

We officially have our “Best missed dunk of the year” — and it’s only November!
