Arkansas Razorbacks' senior guard Davonte Davis lost a tooth after getting fouled by LSU Tiger Tari Eason.

With 0:41 on the clock in the first half, Arkansas' Jaylin Williams stole the ball and passed it to Davis.

Davis took it to the hoop, but was fouled from behind by Eason.

When Davis hit the floor, his tooth fell out.

A fan was quick to catch the moment Davis' tooth fell out, saying it even bounced off the floor.

The broadcast team later confirmed that it was his front tooth and would likely require stitches. But Davis re-entered the game.

Now, Arkansas fans say sacrificing his tooth for the team should inspire a win.

While others watching the game had a few jokes for Davis.

One fan joked that because it's the New Year, Davis will have to wait an entire year to ask for his front teeth for Christmas.

Another fan couldn't believe Davis just went right back into the game, saying if she lost a tooth, she would be too embarrassed to go back to work.
