Arizona loses freshman Trier for up to 6 weeks

BY foxsports • January 10, 2016

TUCSON, Ariz. -- No. 7 Arizona will be without Allonzo Trier up to six weeks after the star freshman broke his right hand against Southern California.

Trier was injured in Arizona's 103-101 double-overtime loss to the Trojans Saturday night. The school sent a release Sunday saying he will be out 4 to 6 weeks, but did not elaborate when he was injured.

"He was playing the best basketball of his young career at Arizona," Wildcats coach Sean Miller said. "Allonzo has worked tirelessly every day since he arrived on our campus. Hopefully he will be able to rejoin us at some point this season and continue his improvement and development as an outstanding player."

Trier was the marquee player in coach Miller's latest recruiting class and lived up to the hype early in the season, leading the Wildcats in scoring with 14.8 points per game.

Trier had 25 points against USC, his third time in four games with at least 20 points.

Arizona center Kaleb Tarczewski recently returned after missing eight games with a foot stress reaction.
