Everyone has seen it happen. A basketball player forgets which hoop is theirs, and in a moment of confusion, scores on the wrong basket. In an all-time brain freeze, the entire U-19 Russian women’s national basketball team simultaneously blanked before scoring on the wrong hoop in a game against Spain.
Oddly, the play happened after a Russian player was called out on a drive to the hole on the right basket. The ref incorrectly awarded the ball to the Ruskies, who pushed the ball up the floor and ran a flawless press break, culminating in a perfectly executed three. One problem. Wrong basket.
Here’s what it looks like when five people simultaneously check out on the basketball court. Maybe they were hacked.
