A couple of readers e-mailed last night to say that they saw Villanova senior guard Allan Ray's eyeball actually get popped out of his head last night. ESPN is apparently refusing to show video of it. We here at Deadspin have no such scruples, so if any of you have the footage, feel free to send it along to firstname.lastname@example.org.
But that's only possible since Ray is apparently going to be fine. They're calling it a "soft tissue" injury, there was no damage to the cornea, he required no stitches, and he can see. He was expected to be released from the hospital this morning and is considered day-to-day. A round of applause to the Big East doctor who attended to Ray immediately.
It was Pitt's Carl Krauser who hit Ray in the eye. Inadvertently, of course. "I just seen him hit the floor, cover his eye and holding it. I thought I hit him in his head because my finger is kind of swollen." Krauser then showed the media his swollen finger. Please keep this brave warrior in your prayers. He may be masturbating with his non-dominant hand for days or even weeks.
