TUSCALOSSA, Ala. (AP) — Alabama point guard Dazon Ingram will miss the rest of the season with a broken foot.
Crimson Tide coach Avery Johnson says the freshman fractured his left foot in practice on Tuesday.
Ingram is scheduled to undergo surgery Friday morning. He has helped lead the Tide to a 5-2 start that included winning back-to-back games over Top 25 teams for the first time in nearly a decade.
Ingram has started every game and leads the team with 5.9 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game while averaging 7.7 points. Johnson says Retin Obasohan, Justin Coleman and Lawson Schaffer will have to step up in Ingram's absence.
Ingram was Alabama's Mr. Basketball last season at Theodore High School.
