Suggest treatment for broken nose

Hi. I play Varsity Basketball and today as a girl went up to the basket, she hit me hard in the nose. This game was about an hour ago, but now I have a really bad headache, and my nose still hurts. Can it be broken? Or maybe is it just a bruise? Thanks for your help.
