UB forward Blake Hamilton breaks bone in hand

Hamilton out four to six weeks


UB men’s basketball team will be without forward Blake Hamilton for four to six weeks, according to a Buffalo News report.

Hamilton has a broken bone in his left hand and is expected to miss UB’s season opener against Niagara on Nov. 11. His status from that point on is up in the air. 

Hamilton averaged 13.1 points and 7.1 rebounds per game last season as UB’s do-it-all forward. Hamilton is expected to take on a bigger role this season as more of a facilitator following former point guard Lamonte Bearden's decision to transfer over the summer.
