Marist's Jarosz Breaks Wrist, Could Miss Season

The Marist women's basketball team is facing, literally, a big loss.

During the Red Foxes' season-opening 66-45 victory against Vermont its new 6-3 center Tori Jarosz, a transfer from Vanderbilt who sat out last season as per transfer rules, suffered a wrist injury that has since been diagnosed as a fracture.

According to the Poughkeepsie Journal newspaper, the injury could keep Jarosz off the court for three months or, even, the remainder of the season.

"Everybody takes it hard," head coach Brian Giorgis told the Poughkeepsie newspaper. "But, they know it's the next man up, and everyone has to step up."

Jarosz did not start in the game against Vermont, but scored a team-high 14 points.

Without her in the Red Foxes second game of the season against Hartford, Marist suffered a 64-53 loss.

Could this be the "break" the rest of the league needs to dethrone the perennial champs?
