Video: Ricky Tarrant sinks game winner after swallowing blood

Who says basketball players aren’t tough?

Ricky Tarrant, a guard from Memphis, took a nasty blow to the face what Temple’s Daniel Dingle hit him head-first when going in to steal the ball. The result was Tarrant bleeding from the mouth, which stopped the play on the court.

But instead of going to the locker room to be taken care of, Tarrant just decided to keep his mouth closed and swallow his blood. He ultimately hit two free throws to clinch the victory for the Tigers.
