We’re all for the spirit of competition, especially come March. The stakes are higher, the gyms are louder, each possession seemingly that much more important.
That said, no matter a game’s intensity, there is no place for fouls like this one from Friday night’s Kansas Class 1A-I state semifinals. See for yourself, as Hanover’s Thomas Atkins is going in for the breakaway slam and is promptly slammed into the basket stanchion.
