Sophomore guard Jeremy Senglin will be out for the next four weeks after suffering a broken jaw in Thursday’s loss to Southern Utah University, Weber State University men’s basketball coach Randy Rahe announced Friday.
“I couldn’t feel worse for Jeremy,” Rahe said. “He’s an extremely tough and competitive player and I know how hard it is for him to not be able to play and help his team.”
The injury will cause Senglin to miss the team’s remaining six regular season games. If the Wildcats make it into the conference tournament, he would be available for the first game of the tournament at the earliest.
“Our main concern is to get him healthy,” Rahe said. “He will bounce back from this and has a very bright future with us.”
Senglin suffered the injury with less than 10 minutes left in the second half Thursday night after he was hit in the face. The Wildcats lost to the Thunderbirds 65-56.
Senglin was the Wildcats’ leading scorer this season and ranks eighth in the Big Sky Conference, averaging 16 points per game. In conference games, Senglin is averaging over 17 points per game.
He also leads the team in assists and steals. He is 10th in the conference with 80 assists and 11th in the conference with 27 steals.
