Lehigh sophomore guard Brandon Alston tore his ACL and will miss the 2015-16, the team announced on Friday evening.
The 6-foot-5 guard averaged 4.9 points and 1.5 rebounds in 15.8 minutes per game as a freshman.
While Brett Reed losses a member of his rotation for the upcoming campaign he does return 6-foot-10 Tim Kempton, the reigning Patriot Player of the Year and point guard Kahron Ross, who was the league’s rookie of the year in 2014-15. Lehigh, a junior and sophomore-heavy team, enters the 2015-16 campaign as the favorite in the Patriot League following a third place finish a season ago.
The Mountain Hawks begin the season at Syracuse on Nov. 13.
