Michael Sanchez Out for Six Weeks with Broken Foot

If it wasn't for bad luck, poor Michael Sanchez would have no luck at all.

The basketball Hogs' frighteningly thin frontcourt just got a little thinner: Sanchez, a 6'8" power forward who missed nearly all of last season with plantar fasciitis, has suffered a stress fracture in one of his feet and will be out approximately six weeks.

Sanchez was probably not going to set any scoring records, but the junior from Springdale is a hard-working, Johnny Punchclock-type who had reportedly looked impressive in preseason practice. His toughness will be missed but hopefully it will be around for SEC play; with Sanchez's luck, though, you better not bet the milk money on that.
