The Miami basketball program announced a big loss on Tuesday morning.
According to the Hurricanes, sophomore guard Bruce Brown Jr’s season could be over after suffering a foot injury at practice on Monday.
The injury to Brown’s left foot will require surgery and will keep him out of action for approximately six weeks. If Brown misses the entire six weeks, he will miss the ACC Tournament but would be available to return to action just before the start of the NCAA Tournament.
