ROCHESTER, Mich. -- Jaevin Cumberland will miss the remainder of the season to address a chronic ankle injury while James Beck will be sidelined six to eight weeks with multiple stress fractures in his right leg announced by head coach Greg Kampe on Wednesday.
”Our number one priority is to get these young men healthy," said Kampe. "It is sad that in a year with such high expectations we loose some key pieces, but next man up. I have a lot of good players.”
Cumberland appeared in eight games this season averaging just over nine minutes per game. The junior guard played in 25 games last season, shooting a team-best 42 percent from 3-point range. He previously underwent surgery on his ankle in May of 2017 to remove a bone spur and multiple loose bodies in the ankle joint.
Beck appeared in eight games, starting in six, and averaged over 20 minutes per game. The freshman forward scored 5.8 points per game and ranked second among true freshmen in the Horizon League with five rebounds per game.
