Lighty out for 6-12 weeks

COLUMBUS, Ohio - David Lighty, a junior on the Ohio State men's basketball team, will miss 6-12 weeks after undergoing surgery Thursday to repair a broken bone in his left foot, Thad Matta, head coach of the Buckeyes, said Thursday.

Lighty suffered the injury to the fifth metatarsal late in the game Wednesday against Jacksonville, an 81-68 Ohio State victory at Value City Arena.

Dr. Grant Jones performed the surgery Wednesday afternoon at the Ohio State Medical Center. The procedure was a success, Jones said.

Lighty tied his career high with 21 points in the win over Jacksonville. He is the most experienced of the current Buckeyes with 83 games played and 51 starts.

In seven games this season, Lighty averaged 9.7 points and 5.7 rebounds.

No. 16/17 Ohio State takes on Iona at noon Saturday (Big Ten Network). The Buckeyes are 7-0 on the season.
