We’re in March now, so now is the time where these kids lay everything on the line in order to help their team make deep runs their conference tourneys or the big dance. This is when we see that extra effort on defense, people diving for loose balls, maybe sacrificing a tooth or two. These are just the prices you pay in March.
Texas guard Kerwin Roach is the latest player to lose a tooth on the court when he took an elbow last night in the first round of the Big 12 tournament. I say latest because usually, we get at least a couple basketball players who lose a tooth per year. Yeah, what up, hockey guys? You might remember Isaiah Thomas losing one in the playoffs last year and going bananas on a few possessions looking like a hockey goon.
Kerwin Roach didn’t come down and hit back-to-back threes on the next two possession like I.T., but he did hit up the Kansas City Chiefs doctor and got that bad boy glued back on at halftime before finishing up his 37 minute night. All he needed was a little Elmer’s and he was good to go.

He finished the night with 9 points, 6, rebounds and 7 assists in the win and they’ll play again tonight against Texas Tech.
Here he is talking about the gluing process
