CINCINNATI (AP) -Xavier guard Mark Lyons will miss at least two games with a bruised knee, a significant setback to the Musketeers as they start the Atlantic 10 season.
Lyons suffered a severe bone bruise in his left knee during a 96-92 double-overtime loss at Wake Forest on Sunday. He'll sit out games at La Salle and at George Washington, then be re-evaluated.
The freshman had started the last five games, earning a significant role in Xavier's offense. He averaged 10.2 points as a starter and has reached double figures in seven games overall.
Xavier (8-5) is the three-time defending A10 regular season champion.
