VIDEO: High schooler shatters backboard -- off an alley-oop

By Matt Norlander | Staff Writer

Well, this is as vicious as it is dangerous as it is spectacular.

The one thing high school basketball can provide us on the regular with that college -- and certainly not the NBA - cannot: an old-fashioned backboard shatter.

Due to older hoops still being vulnerable in many a local gym around the country, on occassion one poor apparatus will fail to sustain itself against the power and fury of a freakily built teenager. Our latest casualty comes from Cary, N.C., where on Friday night Panther Creek senior Nubian Spann demolished the hoop -- OFF AN ALLEY-OOP.

Watch -- and listen. It sounds like a spine snapping. Nasty.

One of the most amazing basketball highlights we've seen this season.
