Texas guard Kerwin Roach lost a tooth on Wednesday night as the Longhorns were battling Iowa State in the Big 12 Tournament.

Roach was guarding Iowa State guard Lindell Wigginton when Wigginton’s elbow inadvertently caught Roach in the face as he was driving to the basket. A video replay showed that Roach lost the bottom part of his tooth as teammate Matt Coleman picked it up off the ground.

Thankfully for Roach, everything looks like it will be okay as his tooth has been re-attached and he’s playing the second half with a mouth guard.
