Pepperdine’s Jason Walberg gouges the eyes of Brigham Young University’s Jonathan Tavernari during a basketball match in Provo, Utah, USA. No foul was called. Although Tavernari missed the basket immediately after the incident, he was not injured. Later in the game he scored back-to-back three-pointers, helping his team win 86-67.
