Prior to West Virginia and Notre Dame competing in the second round of the NCAA Tournament, legendary CBS broadcaster Verne Lundquist was greeted with a stray basketball right in the face.

And the cameras caught the whole thing.


This definitely looked painful for Lundquist as he didn’t see the ball coming at all as he was looking down at his notes preparing for the broadcast. Nevertheless, Uncle Verne was seen smiling and joking with some West Virginia players right after the incident, which was great to see so it looks like he’s going to be OK.
