The hoop Siena players were warming up on at the Koessler Athletic Center crashed to the floor and shattered prior to Friday night’s game against Canisius.
UPDATE: Here’s a low-quality video of the hoop coming down.
(Sorry the video is vertical, had to take it sneakily.)–
No one was injured as a result of the crash, which happened at about 6:15 p.m. The hoop appeared come loose after a dunk by Willem Brandwijk before it buckled and fell while players were shooting on it. The backboard shattered when it hit the floor, not from the dunk.
UPDATE 2: The game will game at approximately 8 p.m., we’re told.
UPDATE 3: Siena posted a little better-quality video:
UPDATE 4: Canisius won handily, 83-49.
