Butler faced Illinois-Chicago last night and it was just another innocent game in the Midwest being watched by a few dozen diehard basketball fans.
And then Matt Howard’s (Butler) face exploded via this elbow to his skull (GIF).
Lost amid the screaming fans as VanZantâ€™s shot sank through the net was that Butlerâ€™s best player, Matt Howard, was on his back in the middle of the lane. Eventually he was helped to his feet, and as he stood up a gruesome sight sent gasps through the crowd of 5,287.
Howard had been accidentally hit on the face. A knot rose over his left eye, then exploded in blood, which covered his face.
Oh, Dear God! Exploded. How cool is that, especially because he didn’t die and will live a full life.
Bingo! Gallery time!
