    A prankster used Christmas decorations to trick his neighbors into thinking a person had toppled off a ladder while hanging up lights and was left clinging onto the gutter.

    It’s not often that basketball players get kicked in the face. Then again, it’s not often a player throws down such a thunderous dunk that they’re afforded a brief moment to hang from the rim. That was the unfortunate series of events in Monday’s Creighton-Ohio game, in which the Bluejays’ Christian Bishop was the recipient of an alley-oop pass, hung onto the rim for a moment too long and accidentally kicked Ohio’s Ben Vander Plas in the face. Bishop scored the goal — which made the score 60-43 Creighton — after Ohio’s Jason Preston turned the ball over, leading to a fast-break opportunity.
