Notre Dame Men's Basketball senior All-American Bonzie Colson will miss eight weeks of game action.

The forward suffered a left foot fracture in practice this week and will undergo surgery this Thursday

Colson led the team to their first ACC win this Saturday with 22 points and tying his career-high in rebounds with 17.

He also received last week’s ACC Player of the Week Award-- leading all current ACC players in career double-doubles and rebounds.

Head Coach Mike Brey released a statement saying:

"We are all feeling for Bonzie right now, who was performing as well as any player in the country. We need to embrace this challenge. This program has lost key guys before and we figured out a way to earn an NCAA bid."
