Iowa's Oglesby out 6 weeks with broken foot
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Iowa junior guard Josh Oglesby will be out six weeks with a broken right foot.
Hawkeyes coach Fran McCaffery says Oglesby, a junior, broke a bone during practice on Wednesday. He was set to have surgery on Friday.
Oglesby is one of Iowa's top perimeter shooters even though he struggled last season.
Oglesby, a native of Cedar Rapids, made 42 3s last season but shot just 27.4 percent from the floor.
Freshman Peter Jok could take Oglesby's place as a shooter off the bench when Iowa opens its season Friday against UNC-Wilmington.
