Oregon State forward Olaf Schaftenaar will certainly never forget the first start of his college career.
Schaftenaar, a freshman from The Netherlands, decided to get fancy during the pre-game layup line prior to Oregon State’s home game against Cal. That earned Schaftenaar a technical foul. Cal’s Allen Crabbe hit one of the two free throws, giving the Golden Bears a 1-0 lead before the game started.
You guessed it, Oregon State lost by one, 60-59. While Schaftenaar didn’t lose the game for the Beavers, it’s fair to say he learned not to dunk in a layup line the hard way.
