This past weekend, Drury took on Rockhurst in a D-II women’s basketball showdown between two Missouri schools. Drury cruised to an easy 94-43 win, but it’s not their victory that’s been entertaining the internet.
Unfortunately for Drury’s Lexie Vaught, a clip from that game is making the rounds for all of the wrong reasons. Watch as poor Lexie loses a shoe, struggles to find her footing, and repeatedly slips and slides all over the place.
Was the hardwood covered in oil? That was about as smooth as someone trying to run on black ice. I don’t know if anyone has ever had a worse 15 seconds ever on a basketball court. Full credit to Vaught for trying so damn hard, even after falling down three times she keeps trying to play and things only get worse/funnier.
One thing I did learn, while Vaught might be a serviceable role player averaging just under 20 mins per game when playing with two pair of sneakers, with just on sneaker she stinks. This is a full on Monstars taking away your power kinda situation.
Friendly advice for basketball players out there, sometimes its ok to fake an injury. You don’t have to roll around on the ground like a soccer play pretending they’ve been shot or like LeBron does. Just grimace, and wait for the play to stop. If Vaught had done that we never would of learned how bad she is at running with only one sneaker on.
I do appreciate her effort as I’m sure everyone does, just trying to protect everyone else from this level of shame. In her defence, she is handling this really well and is even re-tweeting the link out. Shaq has seen this, so there is potential she makes an appearance on Shaqtin’ A Fool.
