Powell out with knee injury
Arkansas Democrat-Gazette/Michael Woods --11/08/2011-- University of Arkansas forward Marshawn Powell goes up for the dunk over the Christian Brothers defenders in the second half of Tuesday night's game at Bud Walton Arena in Fayetteville.
NORTH LITTLE ROCK Arkansas' leading scorer, Marshawn Powell, will not play in Friday night's game against Houston because of a knee injury.
The junior forward was injured during practice Thursday.
"It's a severe knee injury," Arkansas coach Mike Anderson said on his pregame radio show. "We're going to have some further examination done to determine the extent.
"It's a tremendous loss for a guy who has worked extremely hard to get in the best shape of his career."
Powell has battled injuries throughout his career at Arkansas. He missed the entire 2010-11 preseason and three games last year with a broken foot, which he reinjured last spring.
The Virginia Beach, Va., native was averaging 19.5 points and 6 rebounds this season for the Razorbacks (2-0).
