Pittsburgh basketball: Jerome Lane's backboard-shattering dunk happened 28 years ago
It's been 28 years since Pittsburgh's Jerome Lane shattered the backboard with a one-handed slam against Providence on Jan. 25, 1988.
Perhaps as memorable as the dunk itself was the call by color analyst Bill Raftery, who exclaimed his now-signature "Send it in, Jerome!" phrase. Here's the nearly 30-year-old dunk:
Lane's dunk happened only 5 minutes into the game and the assist came from Sean Miller, who currently coaches the Arizona Wildcats.
With Lane's play and Raftery's call, it makes for one of the most unforgettable moments in college basketball history.
