Missouri State men's basketball player Lamont Austin sustained a broken bone in his right foot in the Bears practice Sunday afternoon and will be out of action for the rest of the 2007-08 season.
The injury was diagnosed by X-ray Sunday night. Austin, a freshman guard from Topeka, Kan., played in two of the Bears first seven
games, seeing a total of 14 minutes of action in the contests last week at Arkansas and at home against UNC Wilmington. He had not scored. Bears head coach Barry Hinson indicated that Missouri State would seek a medical hardship for Austin at the end of the year.
