NEW YORK (AP) -St. John's senior swingman Anthony Mason Jr. will miss the rest of the season because of a torn peroneal tendon in his right foot.
``We are all disappointed and feel for Anthony,'' coach Norm Roberts said. ``This is an unfortunate situation, but it is part of the game. We believe that Mase will come back from this, a stronger player and a stronger person.''
Mason was hurt earlier in the week and an MRI and ultrasound on Friday afternoon revealed the extent of the injury.
Mason averaged 18.0 points for the Red Storm (2-1) in the games against Cornell and Boston College in the NIT Season Tip-Off.
He averaged a team-best 14.0 points in 22 games last season.
