TUCSON, Ariz — Arizona forward Stone Gettings is out indefinitely with a concussion and facial fracture suffered in a win last Friday night over Penn.

Gettings was initially diagnosed with a concussion, but it was revealed that he also has a facial fracture from a play that occured in the first half with the Quakers A.J. Brodeur.

"When he returns, I'm sure for a period of time he'll have to wear a mask, but we look forward to getting him back," said head coach Sean Miller.

Ira Lee should receive more playing time when the 12th ranked Wildcats (9-0) visit 18th ranked Baylor (6-1) on Saturday. The game is a rematch of last year's Bears 58-49 win in which they outrebounded the Wildcats 51-19.

"It's a statistic you don't forget," said Lee. "Rebounding has been emphasized in practice."

The Wildcats will be looking to stop Bears leading scorer Jared Baker, who averages more than 19 points per game. Baylor is offering free admission to the game, as it conflicts with their football team's Big 12 Championship game.
