Nash suffers knee injury, may be lost for the season

Wednesday, December 13th

The UVM men's basketball team travels to St. Bonaventure Saturday, but will play that game, and likely go the rest of the season, without freshman guard Skyler Nash.
Nash suffered a knee injury in practice last week and today coach John Becker said the team was awaiting the results of an MRI, but it looks like he will be done for the year. If that's the case, Nash can put in for a medical redshirt for this season and not lose a year of eligibility.
Nash had averaged just under eight minutes a game over the first nine games of the season, but at 6-6, he offered the combination of size and athleticism on the wing that Kurt Steidl provided last season. It's a roll sophomore Everett Duncan is working to fill this season.
Becker said he is considering whether another freshman, 6-5 Vermont Academy grad Bailey Patella, who currently is redshirting this season, may be called on to suit up now that Nash's season appears to be over.
