CBS Sports’ Verne Lundquist took a basketball to the face as he and broadcast partner Jim Spanarkel sat courtside and prepared for Sunday’s Notre Dame vs. West Virginia NCAA Tournament game in Buffalo.

West Virginia guard Teyvon Myers, apparently responsible for the errant ball, apologized to the veteran play-by-by man, per Awful Announcing.

No need to worry about Uncle Verne. He was just fine after the incident and called the game as scheduled.
