ROSEVILLE – Friday night’s Woodcreek High School basketball game was forced to move to Roseville High School after a baby powder stunt left players slipping on the court.

Woodcreek students in the stands tossed baby powder into the air, imitating the LeBron James powder clap. The Miami Heat forward is known to perform the ritual before games.

Students said a big cloud formed from the powder and made for a slippery floor, causing the game to be delayed until it was swept up.

One student told CBS13 that it took officials at least half an hour to clean up the mess, stopping the game several more times because players were falling.

The game was eventually moved to Roseville High School.

There were no reported injuries, but coaches say that the students involved will be spoken to.

Roseville High School went on to win the game 82 to 71.
