The Loyola Greyhounds have learned that they will be without senior guard Dylon Cormier for the foreseeable future, after a hand injury he suffered against the U.S. Military Academy on Saturday, February 1.

Cormier suffered two fractures in his left hand and needed surgery to repair the injury.

The Greyhounds made the injury official on Wednesday afternoon.

“Dylon has been the soul of this year’s team, and we are certainly thinking about him and wishing the best for his recovery,” said Loyola head coach G.G. Smith in a statement. “I know that Dylon will attack rehab like he does anything, with a great deal of passion and intensity, as he prepares to embark on his professional career after graduating from Loyola.

“While we know that we will miss Dylon on the court, we are looking forward to the remainder of the season with some revamped roles for players, and we know that we have a great supporter in Dylon on our bench.”

Cormier is averaging 21.2 points per game this season, which leads the Patriot League. He also is second in the conference in  steals per game (2.2), sixth in rebounds (5.8) and first in offensive boards (3.0).
