News


COLLEGE PARK, Md. (WUSA9) -- University of Maryland Senior Guard Dez Wells will miss at least four weeks with a wrist fracture, the team reported in a news release.

This is a major setback for the red-hot Terps, who have started the season 5-0 and have impressed the critics with some fine freshmen play.

Wells, who suffered the injury during Maryland's 72-63 win over No. 13 Iowa State at the CBE Classic, had surgery Friday morning in Baltimore.

"Dez has been playing at a very high level and we will certainly miss our team leader," Terps Coach Mark Turgeon said. "I am extremely disappointed for Dez because I know how hard he has worked in the offseason to prepare for his senior season."

Wells is averaging 16.2 points and 4.8 rebounds a game for the Terps this season.
