UVa point guard out after surgery

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — Virginia point guard Jontel Evans will be sidelined for about six weeks after having surgery on his right foot.

The university said in a news release that the 5-11 senior from Hampton suffered a stress fracture in workouts last week. He had the surgery Tuesday.

Evans started all 32 games last season as the Cavaliers reached the NCAA Tournament. He led the team with 124 assists and 50 steals while averaging 7.3 points per game.

Virginia opens the 2012-13 season Nov. 9 at George Mason.
