Maryland's Allen Out 8-10 Weeks

Maryland starting point guard Seth Allen will be out 8-10 weeks after fracturing his foot in practice last Tuesday. 
Allen fractured his fifth metatarsal in his left foot after landing awkwardly while driving to the hoop. He had
surgery performed by Dr. Craig Bennett at Kernan Hospital in Baltimore last Thursday to repair the break.
"We are devastated for Seth," said Maryland head coach Mark Turgeon in a press release. "He was playing at a very high level throughout the summer and fall and was poised to have an excellent start to the season. We will support Seth during his rehabilitation process and will prepare him, so he can get back on the court with his teammates."
In his absence, junior Dez Wells will get more playing time at point guard, shifting from his usual position at guard. But without a true point guard, the Terp's offensive game may suffer. Their season starts November 8th against our Uconn Huskies.
The 6-foot-1 Allen started seven games last season and averaged 7.8 points and 2.3 assists in 22 minutes.
