Christ Wright Suffers Broken Hand in Hoyas Loss

Posted by CoHoops DeAnte Mitchell
Despite dropping a game to the Cincinnati Bearcats (22-6, 9-6) on Wednesday night 58-46, the Georgetown Hoyas (21-7, 10-6) will have to deal with a even bigger loss.

During the game, their 6'1'' point guard Chris Wright was diagnosed with a broken hand after a scuffle early in the second half against the Bearcats.

Wright led the Hoyas in assist with 5.5 per game and was the second leading scorer, scoring around 13 per game.

Wright is a huge asset to the ninth-ranked Hoyas. Wright participated in every game this season for Georgetown averaging 33 minutes per game.

The bright spot of the injury is that it's on the non-shooting hand of Wright.

He did try to come back in the game during the second half but immediately after throwing a pass he walked off the court in pain.

Wright reportedly had surgery on his left hand and should be able to return before the season ends.
