Dayton sophomore center Devon Scott chipped a tooth in the first half against St. Francis University on Wednesday night at the UD Arena and left the court in major pain. He returned with the rest of his teammates at the start of the second half looking no worse for wear.
Here’s what happened, according to Dayton Director of Media Relations Doug Hauschild:
“Wednesday night, Devon Scott dove for a ball, got tangled up with another player and ended up breaking a tooth when his head hit the floor midway through the first half,” Hauschild wrote. “Our team dentist, Dr. Richard Quinttus was home watching the game on television and when he saw it happen, he drove down to the Arena. He brought some sort of emergency tooth repair kit with him, and patched Devon up (using some of the tooth that was on the Arena floor) in time for him to be available in the second half. After the game, he opened up his office and waited for Devon to get there so he could make a more permanent repair.”
The Flyers return to action at noon Saturday against St. Francis College (N.Y.) at UD Arena.
