Injured Archie out 4-7 weeks
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Iowa forward Devon Archie could miss the start of the season after injuring his right shoulder in practice.
Hawkeyes coach Todd Lickliter says Archie was hurt Saturday and is expected to be sidelined for four to seven weeks.
Archie is a junior college transfer from Vincennes Community College in Indiana. He averaged 6.8 points and six rebounds a game last season and is expected to be a reserve in Iowa's frontcourt.
Iowa opens its season against Texas-San Antonio on Nov. 15.
