George Washington, American men’s college basketball game interrupted when dog runs onto court
A men’s college basketball game between the American Eagles and George Washington Colonials was briefly interrupted Saturday when “Air Bud” appeared on the court.
OK, so it wasn’t exactly “Air Bud” but it was the closest animal to the basketball-shooting canine that wowed audiences in the series of sports movies in the late 1990s and early 2000s.

The incident occurred in the first half of the game between the Eagles and Colonials. Lucky, the disc-catching border collie who was supposed to be the halftime entertainment, got loose and ran around the court for a moment.
The dog appeared to scare George Washington forward Ricky Lindo Jr. as he was trying to inbound the basketball. Lucky’s appearance led to big cheers at the Smith Center.
Unfortunately, that would’ve been the best highlight for Colonials fans.
