Central Michigan Player Narrowly Misses Being Squished By A Collapsing Basket

There are many things that can befall a basketball player. The entire basket collapsing on you probably doesn't come first to mind.

Watch John Simons of Central Michigan narrowly miss being slammed by a hoop standard Saturday. He was trying to inbound the ball after a forceful dunk by Pete Rakocevic of host Northern Illinois when the structure folded.

Central Michigan lost the game, 73-55, while Simons appeared to have escaped what could have beena serious injury.

Man, that was close.
