Xavier freshman Jay Canty is expected to miss the next four to six weeks with a stress fracture in his right foot, the school announced Wednesday. The development leaves the Musketeers with just nine scholarship players heading into Friday's game against Florida. Even worse is that Canty was the only reserve equipped to play on the perimeter, meaning Xavier now has no perimeter reserves.
Canty was averaging 9.5 minutes per game.
Xavier is 8-3 this season.
The Musketeers have wins over Butler and Seton Hall.
Their losses are to Old Dominion, Miami-Ohio and Gonzaga.
