COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -Ohio State junior forward David Lighty will miss 6-to-12 weeks after undergoing surgery to repair a broken bone in his left foot, Buckeyes coach Thad Matta said Thursday.
Lighty injured the foot late in a home win over Jacksonville on Wednesday night. Lighty tied his career high with 21 points as the 17th-ranked Buckeyes (7-0) remain undefeated with an 81-68 victory.
The surgery was performed Thursday by Dr. Grant Jones at the Ohio State Medical Center.
Lighty is the most experienced player on the team, having played in 83 games, starting 51. He averaged 9.7 points and 5.7 rebounds in seven games this season.
