If you dunked on a 7-footer, you’d want to celebrate, right?
Nebraska basketball’s Isaac Copeland (who is 6-foot-9) dunked over Purdue’s Isaac Haas (who is 7-foot-2) on Saturday afternoon. It was an impressive slam, but the Huskers trailed by 14 points after the basket.
So Copeland didn’t celebrate much. It didn’t look as if he said anything but Copeland did quickly glare in Haas’ direction, something most basketball fans would agree Copeland earned the right to do. One of the game officials disagreed and quickly whistled Copeland for a technical foul.
It’s one of the best in-traffic dunks and worst technical fouls you’ll see all season.

Copeland’s impressive dunk and 16 points did not matter much in the game, though. The No. 13 Boilermakers picked up a 74-62 home win over Nebraska to improve to 4-0 in Big Ten play.
