Mahmoud Will Miss Remainder of Season With Ankle Injury

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- University of Louisville forward/center Anas Mahmoud will miss the remainder of the Cardinals’ 2015-16 season after suffering a right  ankle sprain in practice today.

Mahmoud stepped on another player’s foot to cause the sprain.  An x-ray taken at Jewish Hospital was negative for a break.  With an estimated 3-6 weeks recovery time, he will miss the Cardinals’ six remaining games.  He will be in a boot and on crutches for the immediate future.

A sophomore from Cairo, Egypt, Mahmoud has averaged 3.2 points and 3.0 rebounds this season with 29 blocked shots, averaging 14 minutes a game during the Cardinals’ ACC games.  He has blocked three shots in three of the last seven games.  Mahmoud scored a career-high 15 points at Georgia Tech in January.
