ST. LOUIS (AP) -Saint Louis senior guard Kevin Lisch fell hard on his tailbone in an 86-40 exhibition win over Harris-Stowe on Wednesday night and will likely miss a few days of practice.
Lisch, one of a few veterans on a team with seven freshmen, was hurt 2:05 into the game against the NAIA school. Lisch led the Billikens in scoring (14.6), assists (97) and steals (38) last season.
Jonathan Burch, the school's director of sports medicine, said X-rays revealed Lisch sustained a bruise with a small cut.
``He's a hard player, he's a tough kid and he'll want to get out there quicker than we're ready for him to, but we'll just be cautious with him,'' Burch said. ``He'll be stiff and sore for a few days and fortunately young people heal pretty quickly.''
Saint Louis opens its season Nov. 14 against Missouri-St. Louis.
