Villanova’s Dylan Ennis breaks bone in shooting hand


Dylan Ennis will now have to wait a little longer before suiting up for the Villanova Wildcats. He has fractured his shooting hand, and will miss at least another month. He already missed all of last season for the Wildcats because he transferred over from Rice.

The report was confirmed to ESPN by Villanova spokesman, Mike Sheridan.

“We’re disappointed for Dylan because we know how excited he was about being out there with his teammates,” stated Villanova head coach Jay Wright. “But we know that Dylan will work hard during this time so that he is ready to help us as soon as his injury has healed.”

It’s gotta be hard for Ennis, who must be itching to get back on the court for the first time in over a season. Ennis’ ability to score from beyond the arc makes him an asset in head coach Jay Wright’s system.

The Wildcats were 20-14 overall last season and return four starters from a team that went to the NCAA tournament.

Ennis is expected to give Wright depth on the perimeter to go along with wings Darrun Hillard and James Bell.

Hopefully for Ennis, there will be no further setbacks wi his injury, and he’ll be able to play a college basketball game in the near future.
