AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State freshman Xavier Foster will miss the rest of the season after electing to have surgery on his right foot, coach Steve Prohm announced Monday.

Foster played in seven games, averaging 4.0 points and 7.8 minutes.

The Oskaloosa, Iowa, native was initially injured in high school. The surgery is expected to keep Foster sidelined eight to 12 weeks.

“Xavier has battled this injury for a while now and we fully support his decision to have surgery,” Prohm said. “He tried to play through it, but it became clear that the best thing for his future was to have this surgery and work toward getting him healthy.”
