Senior co-captain Scott Suggs has decided to redshirt his senior season due to an unfortunate toe injury.
According to The Seattle Times' Percy Allen, Washington Huskies co-captain Scott Suggs has decided to redshirt his senior season and return next year due to an unfortunate toe injury has cut his 2011-12 season short.
Suggs underwent surgery back on Oct. 14 in which a pin was placed in his right foot to repair the fifth metatarsal (pinky toe), and was originally given a 8-12 week window for recovery. Suggs felt that the significant chunk of time off would essentially be the majority of his season, and wants to play a full schedule as a fifth-year senior in 2012-13 instead.
The 6-foot-6 guard was the third-leading returning scorer for the Huskies heading into the season, bringing his ridiculous 45% 3-point shooting from last season along with an average of 7.4 points per in 31 games last season. Suggs hasn't played at all for UW this season.
