NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Tulane coach Ed Conroy says leading scorer
Kendall Timmons will miss the remainder of the season because of a
right Achilles tendon injury that required surgery.
Timmons was hurt in the first half of the Green Wave's overtime
loss to Southern Miss on Jan. 7 and Conroy says junior guard had
successful surgery on Monday.
Timmons, who is from Fort Worth, Texas, was averaging 13.6
points and 5.2 rebounds this season.
Conroy says the loss of Timmons "is obviously a big blow" but
will provide other players some opportunities to fill the void.
The Green Wave plays next on Wednesday at Tulsa.
