  • Pitt’s Gibbs Could Miss 2 Weeks With Injury

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    Pittsburgh junior guard Ashton Gibbs could miss up to two weeks with an MCL injury in his left knee, according to team spokesman Greg Hotchkiss.

    Hotchkiss said the injury was discovered after Saturday night’s 71-59¬†win over Cincinnati in which Gibbs scored 25 points and was the result of “wear and tear.”

    “He will not play on Monday,” Hotckhiss said, referring to the ESPN “Big Monday” game against West Virginia in Morgantown, W.V. “We are not going to put a timetable on his return but we anticipate he will be back in 10-14 days.”

    That would mean Gibbs would also miss Pitt’s game at No. 13 Villanova on Saturday.

    Temple Gibbs, Ashton’s father, said his son underwent an MRI that determined a “sprain.”

    “He kind of came down awkwardly last night [on a rebound],” Temple said. “I think he’ll be fine.”

    Gibbs, a former star at Seton Hall Prep in West Orange, N.J., leads the No. 4 Panthers at 16.3 points per game and leads the Big East in free throw shooting at 96 percent.
