M senior Derrick Roland suffered a gruesome leg injury and was taken from the court on a stretcher Tuesday night at No. 22 Washington.
Roland, one of the leading defenders in the Big 12 Conference and the Aggies' second-leading scorer, crashed hard to the court early in the second half after jumping under the basket, apparently breaking his right leg.
Coach Mark Turgeon ran on the court while play continued at the other end. Roland's teammates seemed distraught and Donald Sloan buried his head in his jersey and was helped to the bench.
Four University of Washington doctors rushed to Roland, who remained on his back, arms over his eyes.
After about 10 minutes, he was removed on the stretcher wearing an air cast and loaded onto an ambulance.
