Wisconsin ruled point guard Chucky Hepburn out for the rest of its Midwest Region NCAA Tournament second-round game with Iowa State after Hepburn injured his left foot late in the first half Sunday.
Following a driving layup by Iowa State’s Tyrese Hunter, Hepburn ended up down on the court in a lot of pain at the 4:37 mark of the first half. He was helped from the court, putting no weight on the left foot.
For the start of the second half, Hepburn returned to the Badgers bench on crutches with his lower left leg in a walking boot.
Hepburn, a freshman, averaged 8.2 points and a team-leading 2.4 assists per game for the Badgers this season.
He left the game having gone 0 for 3 from the field with zero points. Wisconsin trailed Iowa State 27-26 at the half.
