The Georgetown men’s basketball team (14-11, 7-5 Big East) suffered a huge loss Saturday morning, when it was announced that senior center Bradley Hayes broke his left hand in practice on Thursday. Hayes will be out indefinitely.
“It is a blow to our team, but I’m very disappointed for Bradley because of the hard work he has put in over the last four years to put himself in a position to have a good senior year,” Georgetown Head Coach John Thompson III said in a press release. “He had successful surgery today and we expect him to fully recover but we are not sure when he will return.”
Hayes, who has started all 25 of the Hoyas’ game this season, is fourth on the team in scoring with 8.5 points per game and leads the team in rebounding, 6.8 rebounds per game, and field goal percentage, connecting on 53.9 percent of his shots.
Freshman center Jessie Govan replaced Hayes in the starting lineup on Saturday against Providence.
