Wichita State Guard Landry Shamet Suffers Broken Foot

The Shockers' star will need surgery.

ESPN's BPI just named Wichita State the No. 1 team in college basketball.

A few days later, and that ranking could be in trouble.

Star guard Landry Shamet suffered a broken foot, and will need surgery to repair the injury.

According to Matt Norlander of CBS, Shamet is expected to miss up to 16 weeks, but should be ready to go by the time the season begins.

From the report:

"I think, based on my X-Rays and MRIs, it's new, but when I rolled my ankle I enflamed it and aggravated it, which led to more discomfort," Shamet said to CBS Sports. "Knowing what I had gone through with my other foot, I knew the symptoms. It felt like the early onset of the last situation. I kind of debated in my head letting it play out, see how it feels, but I decided to get it looked at."

The potential All-American averaged 11.4 points, 3.3 assists and 2.8 rebounds for the Shockers last season. It's a huge blow for the team if Shamet isn't ready for the start of the season, but he should be able to make a full recovery.
