Quinnipiac's Jackson suffers foot injury
Assistant Sports Editor
HAMDEN – Jamee Jackson, a starting forward on the Quinnipiac men’s basketball suffered what is suspected to be broken left foot in Thursday’s shoot-around and will be sidelined for an indefinite time period.
Jackson, third on the team in scoring (9.8 ppg) and second in rebounds (5.4 rpg.), sat out Thursday night’s game against Niagara in a walking boot. He is scheduled for further tests on Friday.
Jackson, a junior from Newark, N.J., had been playing his best basketball since arriving at the school recently. He scored a career-high 21 points in a win against Bryant while grabbing nine rebounds in the game. Last week he scored 20 points in a win at Vermont.
While there was no immediate time on when Jackson could return he could miss between four and six weeks which would translate into around nine games, six of which would be Northeast Conference games.
