    Marquette guard Tyler Kolek will miss the team’s final two regular-season games against UConn and Xavier due to an oblique strain he suffered on Feb. 28 in a 91-69 win over Providence, according to beat writer Ben Steele.

    This news comes after Kolek sat out the Golden Eagles’ 89-75 loss on Saturday to No. 12 Creighton.

    “We’re going to be very aggressive in helping him move forward and get ready to go,” head coach Shaka Smart said after the loss to the Bluejays. “At the same time, he’ll play when he’s ready to play.”

    The team announced that he will be re-evaluated before the Big East Tournament.

    Kolek is averaging 15 points and 7.6 assists (No. 1 in the country) per game for a Marquette team that currently sits at No. 2 in the Big East and is a projected No. 2 seed in this year’s NCAA Tournament.

    On Monday, he was named a finalist for the Bob Cousy Award as the nation’s top point guard.
