from the University of Louisville:

University of Louisville junior guard Quentin Snider will be sidelined for 2-3 weeks with a strained hip flexor suffered in the second half of the Cardinals’ victory over Duke last Saturday.

Snider suffered the injury on a layup with 18:48 remaining in the second half, but finished the game despite his discomfort.  The injury should heal with rest and rehabilitation and does not require surgery.

Snider is the Cardinals’ assist leader and second-leading scorer, averaging 12.1 points, 4.0 assists and 2.6 rebounds.  He is third in the ACC and 32nd in the nation in assist-to-turnovers ratio (2.88). In the last three games, Snider has averaged 15.7 points and six assists.  He has hit 12-of-24 three-pointers in UofL’s five ACC games (.500), fourth best in the league.

Louisville (15-3, 3-2 ACC), ranked 11th in today’s USA Today poll and 12th by the Associated Press, will return to action on Thursday in a home game against Clemson in the KFC Yum! Center.
