Northern Illinois big man Pete Rakocevic threw down a ferocious dunk that brought down the hoop this past weekend.

In a game against Central Michigan, the NIU senior center dunked it so hard that the hydraulics of the stanchion gave way and the entire basket collapsed, narrowly missing Central Michigan forward John Simons, who ducked out of the way.

The game was delayed briefly while the basket was repaired. The two teams were able to finish the contest, and Northern Illinois won 73-55.
