Purdue big man Matt Haarms suffered a terrifying fall after a blocked shot attempt in the second half of today’s game against the Nebraska Cornhuskers.
Haarms, a 7-foot-3 big man, is one of the best shot blockers in the country. He suffered a scary blow to the head after a blocked shot attempt against the Huskers.
The junior big man was undercut by the driving Huskers player on a play at the rim. Haarms went up for the block and had his legs taken out from under him.
Haarms then fell to the floor in scary fashion.
