STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) _ Oklahoma State basketball coach Eddie Sutton injured his nose when he was bumped and fell on an escalator at Los Angeles International Airport.

The 68-year-old coach needed stitches as a result of Thursday's accident, school spokesman Mike Noteware said Tuesday. The stitches were removed Tuesday.

Sutton is recovering at home, according to his son and head coach designate Sean Sutton.

``My father is back in Stillwater and doing great,'' Sean Sutton said.

Eddie Sutton, whose team reached the Final Four this season, was in Los Angeles as a guest of ESPN for the taping of the ESPY Awards.
