CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) Miami Hurricanes star Bruce Brown Jr.'s injured left foot is suddenly healing faster than expected.
Brown won't play in Thursday's NCAA Tournament game against Loyola of Chicago but will be in uniform, coach Jim Larranaga said Tuesday. After initially indicating Brown likely would miss the rest of the season, Larranaga didn't rule out the return of the sophomore guard.
"It's going to be a shock to everybody - Bruce Brown will be dressing come Thursday," Larranaga said before the team boarded a flight to its tournament game in Dallas. "He won't play, but he wants to be in uniform."
