The bad hits just keep on coming for the WKU men's basketball team. Senior point guard Jamal Crook is out 4-6 weeks with a right foot fracture sustained during Sunday's loss at Murray State.
The Courier-Journal reports the injury couldn't come at a worse time, as the Hilltoppers are getting ready to play one of the top teams in the nation, the Louisville Cardinals. WKU head coach Ray Harper says his team is suffering through the worst rash of injuries he's seen in his long coaching career.
WKU had the ball trailing by six with less than a minute to go in the game Tuesday night against Iowa in the 2012 Cancun Challenge, but the Hawkeyes erased the threat and held on for a 63-55 win in Riviera Division play in Cancun.
