Xavier Foster out for rest of season

The following is a press release from Iowa State Athletics:

AMES, Iowa – Iowa State freshman Xavier Foster will miss the remainder of the season after electing to have surgery on his right foot to address an injury that was suffered in high school.

“Xavier has battled this injury for a while now and we fully support his decision to have surgery,” ISU head coach Steve Prohm said. “He tried to play through it, but it became clear that the best thing for his future was to have this surgery and work toward getting him healthy.”

Foster, an Oskaloosa, Iowa native, played in seven games, averaging 4.0 points and 7.8 minutes per contest.

The surgery is expected to sideline Foster for 8-12 weeks.
