Video: Harvard player receives elbow to face, chipped tooth

The Harvard Crimson shocked the New Mexico Lobos in the Round of 64 for the right to play the Arizona Wildcats on Saturday. Their game against the Wildcats didn't go so well, though.

Harvard freshman Siyani Chambers can attest to this after receiving an elbow to the face from Arizona's Kevin Parrom early on in the second half. The incidental contact resulted in plenty of pain and even chipped off part of one of Chambers' front teeth.

The point guard immediately fell to his knees in agony while putting his hands over his mouth. Teammate Christian Webster eventually assisted Chambers by finding the missing fragment of his tooth and picking it up off of the court.

Video of the incident can be seen in a GIF below.

Arizona cruised to a 74-51 win to advance to the Sweet 16, and will play the winner of the Iowa State-Ohio State game next weekend in Los Angeles.

For Chambers and the Crimson, it's safe to assume that this loss may leave a bad taste in their mouth for a while, literally.
