TAMPA, Fla. -- Western Kentucky coach Darrin Horn couldn't stop reading the congratulatory text messages that rolled in after the Hilltoppers shocked Drake on Friday. With his eyes glued to his phone, the 6-foot-4 Horn didn't notice the low doorway inches from his face.

Smack!

The door frame left a deep gash across the bridge of Horn's nose, making him look as if he celebrated the biggest win of his career by telling ultimate fighter Kimbo Slice that his mother wears Army boots. After Horn explained his injury Saturday, he immediately regretted telling the truth.

"I wish I could say I hit it on the rim trying to dunk in practice today," Horn said. "I did try to dunk. I didn't get one down today. No, I just ran into a door."
