Raheem Appleby to Miss 6 to 8 Weeks With Ankle Injury

Beth Hall

Louisiana Tech has been on cruise control lately, but the Bulldogs got some bad news today when they learned they will be without leading scorer Raheem Appleby for quite some time.

The Louisiana Tech Bulldogs have been on quite a roll lately winning six straight and shooting up to tenth in our Mid-Major Madness Power 15. Despite everything to be happy about in Ruston, some bad news came down today regarding leading scorer Raheem Appleby:

Appleby was averaging 16.1 points, 2.3 rebounds, and 2.1 assists for the now 14-3 Bulldogs, who are 2-0 in Conference USA play. Appleby was considered to be one of the frontrunners for conference player of the year thus far in the season.

Michael White will now lead on sophomore guard Alex Hamilton (15 ppg) and senior forward Chris Anderson (10.6 ppg) to lead Louisiana Tech in Appleby's absence.

The Bulldogs have two road games this week, first against Tulane (9-8,1-1) tomorrow and against fellow Conference USA favorite Southern Miss (14-3,1-1) on Sunday.

If everything pans out favorably for Appleby then he could be back for the Conference USA Tournament in early in March.
