Trevon Bluiett aggravated an ankle injury that has been bothering him in recent weeks in No. 24 Xavier’s loss to No. 2 Villanova on Saturday.
He went scoreless in 19 minutes on Saturday and didn’t play down the stretch. He took just two shots.
“”I don’t know much,” Mack told reporters after the game. “He reinjured his ankle and that’s why he didn’t go back in.We felt like 60 or 70 percent of Trevon wasn’t going to be enough. He didn’t want to let his teammates down. We’re going to do what’s best for Trevon like we do everyone that’s in our program.”
“Up until he injured it today, he hasn’t wanted to sit out at all.”
Xavier is already dealing with the loss of Edmond Sumner, the team’s star point guard that tore his ACL last month.
