(SportsNetwork.com) - Arizona forward Brandon Ashley will miss the remainder
of the season with a foot injury he suffered in Saturday's loss to Cal.
It was the first loss of the season for the top-ranked Wildcats, who will now
go the rest of the way without their third-leading scorer and rebounder.
Arizona coach Sean Miller said in a statement released to media outlets that
Miller was done for the season.
"While we're all disappointed, we are also aware that Brandon needs our
support and positive energy surrounding him," Miller said. "Someone once told
me, the hottest heat forges the strongest steel. This adversity will
ultimately make Brandon and our team stronger moving forward."
Ashley suffered the injury just 2:08 into the game after he missed a shot in
the lane and went up for the rebound. He limped off the court to the locker
room and came back to the bench for the second half in a walking boot.
The 6-foot-8 sophomore was averaging 11.5 points and 5.8 rebounds in 22 games.
