Friars standout Kris Dunn will sit the season following shoulder surgery
The Friars' hopes to win the Big East just took a huge hit, and now we wonder if this group can stay good enough to make an NCAA tournament.
Standout Providence sophomore guard Kris Dunn is done for the season. Surgery will be required on his right shoulder, which has been a lingering issue for weeks now, following the injury during an exhibition game at the start of November.
The news was broken Wednesday via a school announcement.
Injuries to Dunn have been a motif of his college career, having been hampered for both of his seasons at PC. Last year he missed the team's first nine games after recovering from a torn labrum and an injury to the same shoulder. Dunn's recruitment to Providence was considered to be a boon, what with him being the rare McDonald's All-American to land on that campus.
Dunn played four games this season, averaging 5.0 assists, 3.8 points and 2.5 rebounds. Providence is 8-2 and hosts Yale on Dec. 17.
