Redshirt junior Maurice Creek has had his first three seasons in Bloomington either cut short (freshman and sophomore year) or completely wiped out (Indiana’s 2011-12 campaign) due to injury.
And with the news that Creek is now out indefinitely due to a right foot injury, it’s possible the rest of this season could be in jeopardy, too.
The full release from IU Media Relations:
Indiana University guard Maurice Creek will be out indefinitely after suffering an injury to his right foot Sunday in practice. Through 10 games, he is averaging 3.0 points and 1.6 rebounds.
“Maurice has been doing so much to improve and help our team,” said IU Coach Tom Crean. “Hopefully this is just a temporary setback.”
With Austin Etherington also out with injury, freshman Jeremy Hollowell could be in line for more minutes in a reserve guard/wing role the rest of the way — or at least until Creek returns.
