Basketball is king in Indiana so with New Palestine taking on Triton Central Friday night, the stakes were high. So high in fact, that Boomer, the Indiana Pacers mascot made an appearance.

Boomer was there to put on a show and that's what he did. He pulled out his trampoline and settled in to bring down the house with a dunk to get the atmosphere rocking. And bring down the house he did. By completely shattering the backboard.

However, this was high school and not the NBA or college, so a backup backboard wasn't available. So the game had to be stopped and relocated to an auxilary gym. Got to think Larry Bird and the Pacers are going to be buying someone a new backboard this weekend. All Boomer had to say about though was "Oooops."

Oooops indeed.
