Cal Poly guard Jamal Johnson won't soon forget having his face stepped on by teammate Reese Morgan as both were attempting to chase down a loose ball during practice Friday.

All Johnson has to do to be reminded this weekend is look in the mirror.

The tread of Morgan's sneaker left an imprint on the right side of Johnson's face that appears as though it may be visible for another day or two. Cal Poly coach Joe Callero tweeted a photo of Johnson's face late Friday night, joking that the junior guard now has "shoe print tattoo."

Johnson paid an unfortunate price for his hustle in practice, but Cal Poly has been rewarded for its effort this season more often than not. The Mustangs (8-9, 4-3) boast a non-league victory over UCLA and are the only Big West team to defeat league favorite Long Beach State so far this season.
