TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Arizona freshman guard Allonzo Trier will be out four to six weeks after suffering a broken right hand in Saturday's 103-101 4OT loss to the USC Trojans.
 
Trier is Arizona's leading scorer, averaging 14.8 points per game. The freshman scored a team-high 25 points in Saturday night's game against USC. It was Trier's fifth game this season with at least 20 points.
 
It is unclear exactly when the injury occurred, as Trier played until the end of the quadruple overtime game.
 
Arizona (1-3 in Pac-12) hosts Washington on Thursday, who sits at the top of the Pac-12 with a 3-0 record.
 
Arizona head coach Sean Miller released the following statement on Sunday afternoon:
 
"When an injury occurs to one of our players, the first priority is his wellbeing. I am disappointed first and foremost to see a great young man like Allonzo suffer an injury. He was playing the best basketball of his young career at Arizona. Allonzo has worked tirelessly every day since he arrived on our campus. Hopefully he will be able to rejoin us at some point this season and continue his improvement and development as an outstanding player."
