Dunk shatters backboard

What a way to clinch a conference title.

Miamisburg senior Connor Brown shattered the backboard glass on a thunderous dunk in the fourth quarter of Tuesday night’s 80-61 win over Lebanon. Brown, a 6-foot-6 center, grabbed a rebound of his own free-throw miss and slammed it home. The shattered backboard forced the game to be moved to the auxiliary gym.

Brown scored a season-high 39 points to lead the Vikings to the Greater Western Ohio Conference South Divsiion title – their first league crown since 1997.

Brown is an Ohio University recruit for football. He signed a letter of intent earlier this month.
