Bucknell player throws basketball directly off the face of a West Virginia player from point-blank range in painful looking blooper

March Madness is officially underway, and it didn't take long for the basketball tournament to give us its first truly painful-looking blooper.

Bucknell, a 13-seed in the West Region, is locked in a close first-round game against West Virginia, a 4-seed, in Buffalo, NY. On a broken play during the first half, Bucknell's Avi Toomer attempted to save the ball from going out of bounds by throwing it off a West Virginia player. The only problem was that as Toomer jumped in the air and turned to ricochet the ball of a West Virginia player, he wound up throwing it square off the face of WVU's Elijah Macon — from point blank range.

Check it out (via Bleacher Report):

Macon seems lucky to not have broken his nose. Toomer, meanwhile, successfully kept possession for Bucknell.

NOW WATCH: This is why fighting is allowed in pro hockey — and why the NHL has no plans to ban it
