CHARLOTTESVILLE-Freshman guard Malcolm Brogdon (Norcross, Ga.) of the Virginia men's basketball team will miss the remainder of the 2011-12 season because of a foot injury, Virginia head coach Tony Bennett announced on Tuesday (March 6).
Brogdon has a broken bone in his left foot and will undergo surgery on Wednesday (March 7). His rehabilitation period is uncertain.
Brogdon, who missed the Cavaliers' last two games, played in Virginia's first 28 games this season, starting one. He averaged 6.7 points and 2.8 rebounds a game, while shooting 39.6 percent (63-159) from the field and 80.0 percent (40-50) from the free-throw line. He scored in double figures five times.
Brogdon scored a season-high 16 points in Virginia's 70-58 victory over No. 14 Michigan on Nov. 29. His scoring high in an Atlantic Cost Conference game this season was 14 points in UVa's 71-44 win over Maryland on Feb. 18.
welp. at least theres no uncertainty left. This is the team we're gonna run with and i have faith in them.
Thank God. For a second there I thought this was going to be BAD news. SMH.
Took the words right out of my mouth. I hate to keep dwelling on it, but c'mon man
I forgot that Brogdon scored 16 against Michigan.
Comparing the box score from the Michigan game to the Maryland game really shows how many changes this team has endured in the past few months.
DAMN IT.... now I know what cheerios which have been pee'd in tastes like.... NOT GOOD!
I feel so bad for Malcolm. He was having a really nice freshman season and postseason experience would have been wonderful for him. It's amazing to think that we have lost 4 players out of 11 scholarship players since the beginning of the season. Even more amazing that we will still make the NCAA tournament despite all that. Not sure how much we have left to make a run, but this team has a lot of fight and determination in it.
This team is about as battle worn as you can get. I believe in miracles, and we're going to need a few.
Excuse me, while I hit this sky hook.
Out of all teams I'm most terrified of nc state. For some reason I think duke and unc will b hard to beat but thy dnt scare me like nc state does. I can see us losing our next two games. It just make me want to go after some oof our ex players hard. We had a chance to be 27-3 with those players and assane being heathy. By the way assane should b ashame of himself. I dnt knw wht he did to get suspended but I guess it has somethng to do with academics. Assane come frm a rough situation and kids from his home would do anythng to b in his shoes and for him to blow it make me upset. Bennet absolutly adore assane so he must had did somethng real bad to get kick off the team his senior yr and when his presence is greatly needed. I wouldn't aloow him to b on the bench because in my mind he quit on his teamates for not doin wht was ask of him. It jus piss me off to think we had a great team and attrtiton, bad decisions and suspensions caused us to not achieve high expectations.
Tugard I agree with you about NC State. They are going to come into that game Friday with a huge chip, and a lot to play for. I did not want to see them again.
Don't know if there's any truth to it, but the rumor I heard at least sounds believable. The rumor was that Assene knew that he wouldn't return this season because of his injury and then broke a team rule. If I'm him and find out that I'm out for the season on a top 20 team, I might tie one on. PURE speculation all the way around, but until I know the facts, I'm not going to judge.
Agree about not wanting to face NCS and Howell again, but, if we get decent refs that will call fouls both ways, he'll have 3 early and won't be as big a factor as in the last game. OTOH, if we play scared, they'll run us off the court.
