Drake’s Ricks out for season with broken foot

DES MOINES – Drake senior guard Gary Ricks Jr., the team’s second-leading scorer, will miss the rest of the season with a broken foot.

The Bulldogs say that Ricks, who is averaging 12.3 points a game with a team-high 3.6 assists, has a fractured bone in his left foot.

Ricks was shooting 45 percent from 3-point range for Drake, which has surged to a surprising 6-2 start. Ricks also scored 25 points for the Bulldogs in a win over Fresno State late last month.
