Drummond out for season
Casiem Drummond will have surgery on his ankle after fracturing it in the game against Siena. Drummond has been used sparingly since suffering from a stress fracture in December. The new injury is unrelated to the previous injury, and it will sideline him for the remainder of the season. The injury shouldn't affect Villanova's gameplan for Kansas because Drummond has not been a major part or the team's recent success. Casiem has missed thirteen games this season, and has played less than three minutes in four other games. This has become a lost season for the big man, and it's a shame because he proved to be a real force inside at times early in the season. He had a monster 17 rebound game against NC State in the Old Spice Classic. He also worked hard to get in shape during the offseason by losing a lot of weight. Let's hope he makes a full recovery and continues to work and improve for next season.
