Iowa State freshman F Xavier Foster will miss the remainder of the season to have foot surgery, the university announced Monday morning. The foot injury suffered by Foster dates back to high school. “Xavier has battled this injury for a while now and we fully support his decision to have surgery,” ISU head coach Steve Prohm said. “He tried to play through it, but it became clear that the best thing for his future was to have this surgery and work toward getting him healthy.”
Foster appeared in 7 games for the Cyclones this season, averaging about 8 minutes per game while scoring 4.0 points and shooting 75% from the 3 point line. The former 4 star recruit’s playing time has been sporadic, and hopefully the surgery and time off will allow him to return to 100% when we next see him on the court. The Cyclones return to action this Wednesday at Kansas State. Stay tuned to WRNL for continued men’s basketball coverage.
