UConn’s Alterique Gilbert suffers dislocated shoulder

The UConn men’s basketball team has stumbled out of the gates, with losses to Wagner and Northeastern, while narrowly edging out a three-point win over Loyala Marymount.

The Huskies have mightily struggled on offense and now things could be worse for the foreseeable future thanks to an injury to guard Alterique Gilbert.

During Thursday night’s win over Loyola Marymount, the freshman went down with a disclocated shoulder.

Gilbert, who entered the game as UConn’s third-highest scorer with 10.5 points per game, was able to hit double-digits (10) before being forced out of the contest. Now, he will have to undergo further medical evaluation to determine an exact timeline for his return.

That will take place when the Huskies land in Hawaii.
