Virginia basketball star Scott now out for the season

The Virginia basketball program, which just gave North Carolina a tough game in Charlottesville Saturday, suffered a blow Monday when coach Tony Bennett announced senior Mike Scott has had a second surgery on his left ankle and is out for the season.

Scott, a 6-foot-8 senior, led the Cavaliers in 15.9 points and 10.2 rebounds. "Guys will have to find a way. We don't have a dominant post player," Bennett said Monday.

Bennett said Scott had "a loose piece" in his ankle and the program had hoped the first surgery Dec. 16 would be successful. The Cavaliers next game is Saturday at Duke at 2 p.m.

Virginia hopes Scott will be awarded a medical redshirt.
