This past Saturday, 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 dominant victory that’s been making headlines. Unfortunately for Drury’s Lexie Vaught, a clip from that game is going viral for all of the wrong reasons. Watch as poor Lexie loses a shoe, struggles to find her footing, and repeatedly falls all over the damn place.
Was the hardwood covered in Crisco? That was about as graceful as an elephant trying to ice skate. By my count, she fell to the floor three times in 14 seconds. This just shows why you should never hustle under any circumstances, as only bad things happen when you fully exert yourself.
If she didn’t keep trying to get up to make a play for her team, she wouldn’t have achieved internet infamy. You’ve got to know when to hold them, know when to fold them, and know when to lay motionless on the court and wait for a stoppage of play to bail you out.
As embarrassing as that was, this is still the GOAT when it comes to basketball fails.
