Arizona guard Rawle Alkins out eight to 12 weeks with broken foot

Arizona guard Rawle Alkins will miss at least two months after undergoing surgery Wednesday to fix a broken bone in his foot.

The release also stated that Alkins underwent successful surgery on Wednesday to fix a fractured bone in his right foot. He chose to test the National Basketball Association draft waters this year but opted to return to Arizona for another season.

Alkins, a sophomore, averaged 10.9 points, 4.9 rebounds, and 2.1 assists in 28 minutes per game.

Alkins is projected as a second-round pick in the 2018 National Basketball Association draft, according to ESPN's Jonathan Givony.

Chandler student arrested after gun, box of ammo found in backpack
At 9:05 a.m., police responded to the high school for a report of a student brandishing a handgun at another student. A teacher saw Matthews and another boy in a hallway exchanging money, according to police and school officials.

Arizona has a strong case to be considered the preseason No. 1 team in the country, as it returns Alkins, Allonzo Trier and Dusan Ristic. With Alkins out until late November at the earliest based upon the school's prognosis, the Wildcats will have to account for the absence of three of the team's top five scorers from a season ago when their 2017-18 campaign begins on November 10.

Freshman Brandon Randolph, who scored 21 points in his debut this summer with Arizona during its trip to Spain, is he favorite to likely step into Alkins' role in the interim. It's unclear when Alkins will return.

Two days after an assistant coach was one of 10 arrested as part of an ongoing FBI investigation into corruption and fraud, the Arizona Wildcats received more bad news. Richardson allegedly accepted a $20,000 bribe, which he used to pay at least one recruit to play for Arizona.
