Mississippi State guard tries to dunk over pancake mascot … and fails


Dunking over mascots has become all the rage (who can forget Aaron Gordon’s acrobatics in the NBA dunk contest), so it made sense for a college kid in the college dunk contest to try and soar over a mascot and hear the crowd roar.

However, Mississippi State guard Craig Sword wasn’t going to dunk over any ordinary mascot. No, he was going to sky over a pancake.

Yes, you read that right. He was going to soar over a pancake that was standing up because the contest was sponsored by Denny’s.

Let’s just say, Craig Sword is no Aaron Gordon.

He failed to jump over the breakfast mascot more than once. Good on the pancake for dusting itself off and getting up (with a little help) every time.
