March 20 (UPI) -- You could feel this one from home.
Before the Notre Dame versus West Virginia game Saturday, CBS broadcasting legend Verne Lundquist was sitting next to Jim Spanarkel. A basketball skipped their direction and hopped over the scorer's table, drilling Lundquist in the face.
The basketball came from a warm-up shot by West Virginia's Teyvon Meyers.
The 76-year-old is due to retire this season. He said his goodbyes to the college football platform last year.
"Oh, that hurts on replay," Lundquist said on the broadcast. "It's a tougher sport than I thought. That was Tavon Meyers, No. 0 at the time. I got him back. I went out and tore his jersey so he had to change to No. 22...You gotta come tough and ready with these guys."
Verne took a basketball off the noggin, but don’t worry, he’s still on the call. pic.twitter.com/k99S5cyEPr— March Madness TV (@MarchMadnessTV) March 18, 2017
