The Schott went quiet after Ohio State forward Andre Wesson's head bounced off the court. He was writhing in pain after colliding with a Bucknell defender moments into the second half of the No. 15 Buckeyes' home tilt against the Bison.
Wesson eventually made his way to the locker room for treatment after losing three of his top teeth.
A. Wesson lost 3 teeth (top) in collision, he has a mouthpiece in and is available to return. Fortunate to have former hockey trainer Jeff Deits on the bench for the Buckeyes.— Dan Wallenberg (@OSUADAthComm) December 15, 2018

It would take more than that to keep the Westerville South product out of action, however, as Wesson returned to the court minutes later to help spark an Ohio State run that turned a six-point deficit into a double-digit lead.
The Buckeyes ultimately came away from Saturday's game with a 73-71 win over the Bison to improve to 9-1 on the season; Wesson finished the game with four points, nine rebounds and two assists.
