Ashley to miss remainder of the season

Posted: Updated:
Tucson, AZ -

University of Arizona sophomore forward Brandon Ashley will miss the remainder of the season with a foot injury sustained during Saturday's night game at California.

"Last night, early in our Cal game, Brandon Ashley suffered a foot injury that will end his season, said Wildcats head coach Sean Miller in a statement released by the school.

"While we're all disappointed, we are also aware that Brandon needs our support and positive energy surrounding him. Someone once told me, the hottest heat forges the strongest steel. This adversity will ultimately make Brandon and our team stronger moving forward."

Ashley averaged 11.5 points and 5.8 rebounds in 22 games, all starts, for the Wildcats this season.
