Pitt's Gibbs could miss up to two weeks
The University of Pittsburgh will be without leading scorer Ashton Gibbs for 10 to 14 days due to an MCL injury in his left knee, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported Monday.
The junior point guard was injured late in the first half of No. 4 Pitt's 71-59 win over Cincinnati when he landed awkwardly on a layup attempt. An MRI showed a strain in the knee ligament.
Gibbs, 21, will miss Monday night's matchup against West Virginia and is doubtful for Saturday's showdown at No. 12 Villanova.
Gibbs, who averages 16.3 points per game, will be replaced at the point by sophomore Travon Woodall. The Panthers are atop the Big East conference at 21-2 this season, with a 9-1 mark in league play.
