Big Blow: Hogs Lose Leading Scorer Powell To Knee Injury

The up-and-down career of Marshawn Powell is down again thanks to a knee injury that will serve as big blow to Mike Anderson’s first Arkansas basketball team.

Powell — the Razorbacks’ leading scorer — is out for the season with torn ligaments in his knee.  The injury occurred during practice on Thursday.  The Hogs are left with just nine scholarship players on their roster, just four in the frontcourt.

“This is a big blow to Marshawn and our basketball team,” Anderson said in a press release.  “He has been working hard on and off the court this year and was in the best shape of his career.  This is definitely a setback, but I told him that sometimes you have to have setbacks in order to have a great comeback.  He is in good spirits and looking forward to helping this team in any way that he can.”

Powell had averaged 19.5 points and 6 rebounds in Arkansas’ first two games.  Without the preseason All-SEC forward, the Hogs lost in Little Rock to Houston, 87-78.
