Louisiana Tech has spent much of this season gliding under the radar as one of the nation’s best teams that you haven’t seen play, but the Bulldogs suffered a significant blow when leading scorer Raheem Appleby went down with an ankle injury last Thursday.
According to the Shreveport Times, the injury was bad enough that Appleby had to be taken off of the court on a stretcher.
On Wednesday, the school announced that the ligament damage that Appleby suffered is bad enough that it will keep him out for six-to-eight weeks. He’ll be further evaluated by doctors, according to the school, because he may need surgery on the ankle. That would end his season. If he’s only out for six weeks, he could returns for the Conference USA tournament.
