VIDEO: Hoop crashes before Canisius-Siena

By Nick Veronica

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:

Canisius won handily, 83-49.
