Wisconsin basketball took on the Chicago State Cougars on Friday evening. Before the final buzzer could sound, Wisconsin Badgers fans received bad news.
Wisconsin Basketball PG Chucky Hepburn Exits Game with “Lower Body” Injury
After forcing a turnover, Wisconsin basketball starting point guard Chucky Hepburn appeared to suffer a non-contact injury. At half court with a breakaway basket available to him, Hepburn awkwardly stepped. After the step, he fell to the ground in pain.
Hepburn was helped off the court and immediately walked to the locker room with assistance from training staff. Shortly after the Nebraska native exited the game, UW officials announced he would not return. The junior was officially diagnosed with a “lower-body” injury. He rejoined the team on the bench, still in uniform.
Before his exit, Hepbrun logged 11 points on four-of-seven shooting from the field and three-of-four shooting from the free throw line. He also had two assists and five rebounds, including two on the offensive glass, in 21 minutes of action.
Wisconsin Basketball Provides Update on Chucky Hepburn Injury
After the game, Wisconsin Badgers head coach Greg Gard was asked about Hepburn’s status. Gard says Chucky Hepburn “was walking around in the locker room afterward. I’m sure he’ll be sore for a little bit, but he feels he’s going to be fine.”
Wisconsin basketball plays its next game on Tuesday, January 2nd, against the Iowa Hawkeyes.
