Video: Georgia Tech player hits the floor hard after dunking
Georgia Tech suffered a painful 73-57 defeat to No. 3 Duke in more ways than one on Thursday.
Trailing by 14 five minutes into the second half, Yellow Jackets forward Robert Carter Jr streaks through the lane and proceeds to slam home an impressive dunk. On the way down, however, he gets caught up on Duke's Miles Plumlee and goes down hard, back-first, onto the hardwood. Ouch.
The good news is that Carter was able to bounce up and walk off the floor on his own power. The bad news is his team got outscored 46-29 in the second half after holding a one-point edge at the break.
Carter finished with eight points and nine rebounds.
