Demontez Stitt Has Minor Knee Surgery, Out Two Weeks
The senior guard is averaging 13.8 points per game while hitting 37.5 percent of his 3-point attempts. He's been a steady source of scoring for the Tigers, as he has scored in double figures eight of their nine games. The only time he didn't was in limited action of a season-opening blowout win over Western Carolina.
The Tigers (5-4, 0-1) did already open ACC play, but don't have another conference game until hosting Miami Jan. 8. That means Stitt will have more than enough time to get himself ready for conference play. Until that game, the Tigers face a bevy of small-conference foes, though Charleston (Dec. 22) is no pushover. Still, all six of the games before the Miami battle are winnable for Brad Brownell's team, even without its top scorer.
