Temple freshman guard Trey Lowe could miss the rest of the season after suffering injuries in a one-car accident on Sunday night. According to a release from the school, Lowe is receiving medical care from the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, N.J. after receiving upper body injuries in the accident.

“I visited Trey and his family on both Sunday and Monday at the hospital,” Temple head coach Fran Dunphy said in the release. “Our thoughts and prayers are with them at this time and we are hopeful that he will make a full recovery.”

The 6-foot-6 Lowe appeared in 28 points and started five this season and had a career-high 21 points in a loss to Villanova Feb. 17. Lowe is averaging 4.8 points and 1.5 rebounds per game this season and hadn’t played as much in the Temple rotation the last few weeks outside of the Villanova game.
