THIS IS A new one on us, a dunk rejected by the net.

That’s what happened to Oregon’s Elgin Cook after it appeared he’d scored an easy two points following an offensive rebound against Utah.

The cotton though, had a mind of it’s own.

Thankfully for Cook, the freak rejection had no impact on the result with the Ducks running out 70-68 winners in overtime to go 13-0 on the season.
