The University of Detroit played Valparaiso on Thursday in a game that featured one of the best comebacks in men’s basketball this season — Valpo storming back from a 50-32 halftime deficit (and 88-77 with 3:01 left in the game) to win, 89-88. But this play kind of spoiled the victory, in my humble opinion.
With 11:17 remaining in the game, Detroit’s Doug Anderson was going in for an acrobatic dunk when Valpo’s Bobby Capobianco, a transfer from Indiana, went all Patrick Willis on him. That’s not a good thing in basketball (it may not surprise you to learn that Capobianco’s father, Bob, played football at Vanderbilt). The tackle drew an intentional foul and got Capobianco ejected.
Ha. Check out the Detroit ball boy waving him off the floor:
