Marquette center likely out for season


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Marquette University men's basketball coach Buzz Williams says sophomore center Chris Otule has fractured his right foot and will likely miss the remainder of the 2009-10 season.

Williams says Otule injured his foot during practice on Monday.

Otule appeared in all three of Marquette's games this season, and earned his first career start in a victory over Grambling State. Otule, of Richmond, Texas, was averaging 3.7 points and 2 rebounds per game.

Otule missed the first 10 games of the 2008-09 season and played in just nine games overall after breaking a bone in his left foot.

Marquette had already lost freshman guard Junior Cadougan for the season to injury.
