Duquesne loses Mason to broken hand

College Football Videos

A broken shooting hand will sideline Duquesne sophomore guard Micah Mason for several weeks.

The Highlands graduate was injured Nov. 20 against Albany but finished the game and made a shot with it broken. Mason, who is wearing a cast, fractured the fourth metacarpal in his right hand, said coach Jim Ferry, who projected Mason to miss four weeks. How the injury happened isn't clear, he said.

“It's always disappointing when someone gets hurt,” Ferry said, “but especially Micah, with what he's been through.”

Mason has averaged 8.8 points in his first season with Duquesne. The Dukes face Pitt at 1 p.m. Saturday in the City Game.
