Charles Little Out 4-6 Weeks

DDN Reports Little Has Ankle Fracture

I'm not going to lie; I'm starting to get a little depressed. We're going to be without our stud freshman and now without last season's A-10 Sixth Man of the year. Going into the Xavier game, this is not what I wanted to see. Little is a firebrand and was 100 percent certain to be one of the guys getting the team fired up during a tough road trip. Get well soon, Charles.

It's likely that Devin Searcy will now see some noticeable minutes during the Eggsavier game and for several weeks to follow. Personally, I didn't think he was ready when I saw him for the limited minutes he's played this year. We're going to need some really big play from some guys that just aren't accustomed (or even able) to put out that kind of production.

Suffice it to say that our inside presence and our ability to get to the hoop has been greatly diminished over the last few weeks with the injuries to Wright and now Little. If we don't shoot considerably better than we did against UMass from outside, we will not beat X.
