Virginia guard Evans could be sidelined for opener

  •  

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Virginia could be without point guard Jontel Evans when it opens the season at George Mason.

Evans, the Cavaliers' lone scholarship senior, suffered a stress fracture in his right foot while in practice in late September and had surgery Oct. 2. Evans says he expects to be back in about six weeks.

The Cavaliers will also be without Malcolm Brogdon, who can also play point guard, while he rehabs from foot surgery last March. Brogdon says he's not sure when he will be cleared to play.

Evans started all 32 games last season as the Cavaliers reached the NCAA tournament. He was an ACC All-Defensive selection, averaged 7.3 points and led the team with 124 assists and 50 steals.

Virginia plays at George Mason on Nov. 9.
