Notre Dame will want this one back, but Saint Joseph's guard Langston Galloway wanted it more. He gave up a tooth for it.
With five minutes remaining in a tight game in the semifinals of the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic on Friday night at Barclays Center, Galloway became tangled up with Notre Dame's Jerian Grant near the 3-point line.
Grant fell on top of Galloway driving his head into the hardwood and knocking out a tooth.
Galloway left the game for only a few moments — less than 30 seconds of game time — and ultimately hit the game-tying shot to send it into overtime where the Hawks won 79-70.
"I dove on the floor and someone jumped on top of me and my face went into the floor," Galloway said. "I got the tooth and they tried putting it back but it hurt too much so they stopped. Hey we won."
While Galloway was an inspiration to his teammates, Ronald Roberts was the driving force behind the win. Roberts scores 21 points and grabbed 16 rebounds.
