HONOLULU -

An Indiana State player lost a tooth when he was accidentally elbowed in the face by Miami's Kenny Kadji during Tuesday night's game at the Diamond Head Classic in Honolulu.

Sophomore center Justin Gant was fouled when he went for a rebound with a little more than eight minutes left in the second quarter. A time-out was called as coaches game onto the court to help him.

Gant eventually returned to the game, helping the Sycamores beat the Hurricanes 57-55 with five seconds left in overtime.
