Al Nolen Breaks Foot
Al Nolen has broken his right foot, will require surgery, and reportedly will be out 4-6 weeks. It's a big blow to the #18 Minnesota Gophers as Al Nolen is a senior leader, controls the tempo at point guard, and plays solid defense. In his absence, Blake Hoffarber will move over to point guard and try to fill the gap while Al is out. The time table for Al to return is sometime in mid-March. Hopefully in time for the Big Ten Tournament and NCAA Tournament.
