Julian Rishwain will miss the remainder of the 2022-23 season after suffering a torn right ACL, MCL and PCL, college basketball journalist Rocco Miller reports. Rishwain began the season as a starter for USF before getting demoted to a reserve back on Dec. 17, but had still been seeing roughly 20 mpg in the games leading up to injury. The serious knee tear apparently happened in a Jan. 12 game against Portland -- just five days after posting a season-best 18 points on 7-of-12 shooting. With Rishwain sidelined, it appears Marcus Williams will be the next man up for the Dons, with Justin Bieker also filling in in a lesser capacity. Rishwain is scheduled to undergo surgery, and his availability for the start of 2023-24 is unclear given the comprehensive ligament damage.
Saint Mary’s Gaels DFS Spin
Alex Ducas supplied 25 points (7-10 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 8-8 FT) and four rebounds over 35 minutes during Wednesday's 69-65 loss to New Mexico. Ducas' 25 points tied a career best in which he did once as a sophomore and once as a junior. Now as a senior, Ducas is ready to step up following the loss of Tommy Kuhse. After dropping the last two games by close margins, St. Mary's will need another special performance from Ducas is they have any hope of upsetting Houston on Saturday.
