Bison hoops team loses leading scorer for 4-6 weeks

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — The leading scorer for the North Dakota State University men's basketball team will be out four to six weeks with a broken foot.

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — The leading scorer for the North Dakota State University men's basketball team will be out four to six weeks with a broken foot.

The Forum newspaper reports that Taylor Braun broke a bone in his right foot Saturday in NDSU's win over Oakland. Coach Saul Phillips says it might have happened when Braun's foot landed on something — possibly the foot of a television cameraman on the sidelines — or when he made a hard cut.

Phillips says he hopes Braun will be back for the Summit League tournament in early March.

The Bison are 15-3 and 6-0 in the conference heading into this week's games against Indiana-Purdue-Indianapolis on Thursday and Western Illinois on Saturday.
