Texas G Kerwin Roach has tooth knocked out after being elbowed
Kerwin Roach’s time at the Big 12 Tournament may end up including a trip to a dentist.
The junior guard appeared to lose a tooth (or part of one) during Wednesday’s game against Iowa State after being elbowed in the mouth.

A teammate picked up Roach’s tooth off the floor, as the guard exited the game. He checked back into the game later in the first half for the Longhorns.
Roach is averaging 12.3 points, 3.6 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game this season for Texas.
Roach sent this funny tweet later in the evening:
