Boston University senior forward Jake O'Brien is expected to miss the entire season after having a second surgery on his foot on Monday. 

O'Brien is a 6-foot-8 forward who missed the second half of last year after suffering a broken foot on Dec. 31.

"The foot never healed, so I had to go in and have a second procedure," O'Brien told CBSSports.com.  

O'Brien, who was set to to be cornerstone of new Terriers coach Joe Jones' team this season after BU graduated America East Player of the Year John Holland, said the rehab is expected to take anywhere from 3-5 months. 

"I'm going to redshirt and not rush back into anything," O'Brien added.

O'Brien, who hopes to practice with the team at some point later this year, averaged 13.8 points and 6.4 rebounds as a junior and was averaging 10.9 points and 5.5 boards last season when he went down with the injury.

Seriously?  You "broke" the story eh?  I am sure Woodward and Bernstein would have been jealous...So close, so close...Maybe next time, you can "break" the transfer of Iona's backup forward to Lackawanna CC...Oops, guess I just did.

Would have been nice to have been credited as the first publication to break the story - suppose that is always the way it goes when a little fish puts in the footwork to uncover a story before it is picked up by a big news syndicate.
