To those in the greater Jackson, Miss., area: The backboards in your high school basketball gyms are not safe from harm. Until Canton (Miss.) junior Brandon Weatherspoon graduates, that is.
Tuesday night at Holmes County Central (Lexington, Miss.), Weatherspoon made a steal and did what he has likely done many times, which is execute a breakaway dunk.
Something he likely has not done before, however, is take the rim and backboard with him to the ground.
The 6-5 Weatherspoon is the younger brother of Mississippi State basketball players Quinndary and Nick Weatherspoon.
As Brandon told WJTV’s Tyler Greever, the older brothers have never shattered a backboard whilst dunking. Score one for younger bro.
Per 247 Sports, Weatherspoon has offers from Georgetown, Southern Miss and Tennessee. Wherever he ends up, extra backboards would be a wise investment.
