Boston College Basketball: Eagle Action Reporting Two Eagles Down With Injury

Daryl Hicks and Jerome Robinson were both injured against Florida State and will miss the upcoming game against #2 North Carolina.

Eagle Action's Zack Spears is reporting that both Daryl Hicks and Jerome Robinson are out for the foreseeable future with injury. Robinson will be out approximately 3-6 weeks with a fractured right wrist, while Hicks will miss at least the upcoming game with #2 North Carolina after suffering a concussion.

Losing both of these guys is a huge blow for the Eagles. With about 10 games left in the season, Robinson could conceivably see his season ended. If he's able to return after three weeks, he would be back in time for the stretch run, which would include key games against Clemson, Wake Forest, and Virginia Tech. If he's out the maximum, though, it would mean he's out until well into the ACC Tournament, at which point BC's season may already be over.

As for Hicks, he sustained the concussion reportedly due to an elbow to the face against FSU. No timetable was given for his return, but he will likely have to pass all concussion protocols before returning to action.

Losing Robinson is a big hurt for the Eagles. Averaging 33 minutes per game, he's BC's second leading scorer with 11.6 points per game. He's also averaged 1.4 steals per game in his rookie campaign, showing flashes of becoming the next key player for the program. He went for double figures in two of the last three games, scoring 15 against FSU and 20 against Miami. Although he only scored five points against Notre Dame, he locked down six rebounds.

Hicks has seen 14 minutes per game, averaging four points as a role player for the Eagles.
