Colorado School of Mines Trevor Wages shatters backboard on a dunk

Game suspended until Sunday at 5 p.m.

DENVER - The men's basketball game between Colorado School of Mines and Metro State has been suspended until Sunday due to a shattered backboard on a dunk.

With 6:44 remaining in the first half and Metro State holding onto a 21-16 leading, Mines' junior center Trevor Wages took the pass off a pick-and-roll and slammed it home, breaking the backboard in the process.

The glass fell to the floor and the teams left the court.

With no replacement backboard in sight, the schools suspended the game until Sunday at 5 p.m. at the Auraria Events Center.

The make-up game will be free. Hopefully this time around Metro State has an extra backboard around, just in case.
