The entire traveling party had it bad, but perhaps no one had it as rough as Hield.
During Wednesday's game, Hield took a shot from West Virginia guard Juwan Staten that knocked one of his front teeth loose.
Hield, who wears braces, had an even longer day than most of his teammates when the team finally returned.
Hield went straight from the airport to a dentist, where he underwent two root canals.
The sophomore guard wasn't happy about the dental work.
“We all learned from it,” Hield said. “That's life sometimes. Sometimes you face adversity.”
Still, Baylor's zone defense isn't exactly easy to prepare for, and the Sooners could've used the extra day of practice.
“They're pretty long and athletic,” Hield said. “We've got to do a good job boxing them out and just doing what we do best — running out and trying to make them play our game.”
