Was the floor broken at Monday’s NCAA championship game between Kansas and North Carolina?
Tar Heels fans are fed up with speculation that the courtyard floorboards at Caesars Superdome were loose. In slow-motion footage circulating online, UNC forward Armando Bacot can be seen dribble to the basket during a crucial possession with less than a minute left – and the pitch appears to be moving beneath his feet as he rolled his ankle.
Bacot turned the ball around and it was a wrap from there, with the up-seeded Jayhawks making an historic comeback to defeat UNC 72-69.
The 6-foot-11 junior recorded 15 points, 15 rebounds and two assists in the crushing loss.
“I was just trying to drive to the basket,” Bacot said after the game. “And I was just sort of subconsciously trying to lift off my right foot. And then that was the ankle that was injured. And I just rolled it again.”
Bacot was already playing injured after twisting the same ankle in Saturday’s win against Duke.
He was briefly eliminated at 5:18 to play in the second half before checking back in and ending the game.
Space at Caesars Superdome in New Orleans was temporary as the multipurpose stadium is also home to the Saints.
