StreakingTheLawn.com has the story on Sene and Virginia's probable lineup moves.

Virginia just announced today that Sene underwent surgery on his right ankle today, Friday, and will be out for approximately the next six weeks. What was originally described by Coach Tony Bennett as just a roll turned out, according to x-rays, to be a fracture.

"Assane is a senior and an integral part of our team," said Bennett in today's release. "In all my years of coaching, he is one of the most team-first players I've been around. I know he'll do whatever he can from a rehabilitation standpoint to try and return to action before the end of the season."

Virginia's next game is on Sunday night against their in-state rival Virginia Tech.
