    None of you trolls care that lehigh's best player might be done with college basketball?

    You spend the last 8 months posting Lehigh Lehigh Lehigh. I bet none of you even know who McCollum is. Typical unc trolls.

    http://aol.sportingnews.com/ncaa-basketball/story/2013-01-05/foot-injury-knocks-cj-mccollum-out-of-gameC.J. McCollum, a preseason All-American and the nation's leading scorer, might well have played his last college basketball game.

    The Lehigh star limped off the court at halftime Saturday night at VCU and returned to the bench later on crutches with his left foot heavily bandaged. On the bench, NBC Sports Network cameras caught McCollum telling a teammate about the injury and, with tears running down his cheek, clearly said, "I broke my foot."

    Lehigh coach Brett Reed told ESPN late Saturday that if McCollum's injury is a break to the fifth metatarsal and he will be out at least six weeks.

    Reed also told CBSSports.com in a text message regarding the injury that "It's not absolutely clear about the severity of the injury yet. We are going to attempt clearer diagnostic tests tomorrow. It is probable there is a fracture in his foot based on the diagnostics equipment available on site."

    After the game, Reed had said something similar regarding McCollum's injury, stopping short of such a dire conclusion, saying a final diagnosis isn't possible until more tests can be performed Sunday.

    "It appears as if there may be a break in his foot," Reed told reporters after the game. "It is too early to make that diagnosis for sure. I'm certainly not an expert in that area. We're going to take him back, do some tests and we'll ultimately have some confirmation from there, but I think it is a little bit more significant than an ankle sprain.

    He injured the foot while driving into the lane but then pulled up with 5:37 left in the first half. He didn't roll the ankle or make contact with any defenders. He just pulled up in pain.
