College Basketball Player Slaps Opposing Fans for Heckling Him During Game

Wshington v Utah

Sometimes you gotta slap some sense into people.

Washington forward Malik Dime did not play during his team’s 81-66 loss to Colorado on Thursday night, as he was forced to miss the game with a broken pinkie. His impact wasn’t felt on the court, but it was sure felt at half time in the stands by opposing fans.

During the first half of the game, a group of Colorado students heckled and hassled Dime relentlessly for almost 20 minutes.  That reportedly prompted Dime to get up off the bench at the end of the half to confront them.

Dylan and Brian were the opposing fans that were doing the heckling.  Here’s Dylan’s account of what happened:

“We were talking the usual game talk with the players like we usually do. Malik looked over at us at one point and said, ‘I’m gonna come over there and slap the sh*t out of you.’ We didn’t think that was real so we just laughed, and then at the end of the half, he came over to us and pretended like he was giving me a handshake and I reached out and he pulled back and slapped me in the face and the follow through hit the person sitting right next to me, which was Brian.”

“I thought it was a real handshake,” Brian told BSN Denver. “He came over with a windup, it was a hard hit. It’s a double face, there’s no way around that.”

A 2 for 1 special type of slap.

The Huskies dropped to 9-15 on the season.
