Not all heroes wear capes.

When a basketball got stuck underneath the shot clock in a college match between Fresno State and Boise State, you’d have thought that any of the assembled giants playing the game might be best placed to retrieve it.

Especially if they were armed with some long poles which they happened to produce from courtside.

Cue: instant hero status.

Well played that man. Well, boy…
