Huskies lose Roy for at least a month

Seattle, WA (Sports Network) – Guard Brandon Roy, the second leading scorer
for the University of Washington, will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his
right knee and is expected to miss four-to-six weeks.

Roy sustained a torn ligament in the knee Friday night during the Huskies’
semifinal win in the Great Alaska Shootout. Washington (4-0) went on to
capture the tournament without Roy in a squeaker over Alabama and vaulted up
eight spots to No. 14 in this week’s Top 25 poll.

The junior guard averaged 18.0 points in the three games he has played in this
season. He scored 12.9 points per game last season and also led the team with
5.3 rebounds.
