Quinn Cook breaks Mercer’s Kevin Canevari’s ankles (GIF)
Mercer senior guard Kevin Canevari appeared in his first ever NCAA Tournament game on Friday, and Duke’s Quinn Cook did not exactly extend a warm welcome. Canevari got his ankles shattered less than 10 minutes into the first half.
Oftentimes when a player gets his ankles broken, it is excusable and happens among a sea of other players. It can be tough to tell if a player fell because of an opponent’s crossover or if he simply got tangled up with a teammate/opponent. Such was not the case with Canevari, who was out near half court and all alone when Cook did him dirty.
He’ll be hearing about that one for a while.
