WVU’s Bryant has surgery on foot

West Virginia guard Darryl “Truck” Bryant has undergone

surgery to repair a fractured right foot.

WVU basketball spokesman Bryan Messerly says the surgery was

performed Wednesday on Bryant’s fifth metatarsal at Ruby Memorial

Hospital in Morgantown.

Randy Meador, WVU’s coordinator of athletic training services,

says Bryant’s recovery time will be two to three months.

Bryant broke his foot in practice after the NCAA tournament’s

second round and flew to North Carolina to get fitted for a special

insert for his shoe. But he didn’t play again.

A sophomore, Bryant averaged 9.3 points and started 31 games

this season. He was second in team assists with 108 assists.
