Ohio State-Indiana game delayed due to falling piece of metal from Assembly Hall jumbotron
The Ohio State-Indiana basketball game in Bloomington Saturday night drew a primetime broadcast on FOX. Unfortunately, the action in that game was delayed for an extended period of time for an unusual reason.
With the two teams returning to the court, a piece of metal fell from the jumbotron in the middle of Assembly Hall. The piece of metal was substantial in size and can be seen falling just a few feet away from Brice Sensabaugh.

The action eventually resumed in the second half, but it is good news that no one was hurt during the incident. It could have been a much scarier scene if Sensabaugh or another player was directly under the jumbotron when it happened.
