CJ Fair's Bloody Face After No Foul Slam Dunk Stirs Twitter [VIDEO]

  on

Twitter was abuzz Monday evening after Syracuse forward C.J. Fair wound up with a bloodied face after he slam-dunked against Minnesota defense at the Maui Invitational with four minutes and 28 seconds left in the first half. No foul was called in the play, which put Syracuse in the lead and left Fair with an injured face.

The player jumped outside of the restricted zone and had what USA Today called one of the “finest dunks of the season” at the Maui International. Fair’s left hand made it on top of the Gophers’ Andre Hollins for the dunk, but when he came down Fair’s cheek was wounded in the process. Fair was able to continue the game and returned to the court before the end of the first half.

NBA Draft Writer Jonathan Wasserman took to Twitter after the accident, where he shared a photo of Fair after the altercation and the following tweet: 

The rest of Twitter had plenty to say about the forward’s injury. Check out their comments below, along with a video of a dunk, which put Syracuse in the lead 33-27.  Many were upset that a foul wasn’t called for the collision that ended in blood being shed.
