Washington G Suggs to redshirt for the season

Injured Washington guard Scott Suggs will redshirt this season

after missing the first seven games with a foot injury.

Washington coach Lorenzo Romar made the announcement on Friday

in a conference call with reporters ahead of the Huskies’ game

Saturday with No. 7 Duke at Madison Square Garden.

Suggs suffered a broken bone in his right foot in early October

before practices began. He had surgery and was targeting the game

against Duke as his possible return.

Suggs averaged 7.4 points and was third in the Pac-10 in 3-point

percentage during his junior season. Suggs was one of just two

scholarship seniors on the Huskies roster this season.
