In dunk contests these days, there are as many props as actual — you know — dunks. So, it was not surprising to see Mississippi State guard Craig Sword employ a prop of his own in Thursday’s College Hoops Dunk Contest.
Sword’s victim of choice? A pancake mascot.

Poor pancake. All that for a miss?
Shout out to the pancake for its defensive prowess and the willingness to put its safety on the line for entertainment. I’m sure its parents are proud.
