Owls' Williams fractures foot

Temple senior forward Craig Williams, who had just been cleared for limited practice from a fracture of the fifth metatarsal of his right foot, suffered a fracture of the fifth metatarsal of his left foot on Sunday before the Owls' victory over Toledo.

Williams, who will not need surgery, is expected to be out a minimum of 4 to 6 weeks.

As a junior in 2009-10, Williams played in 28 games, starting six times, and averaged 3.8 points and 1.8 rebounds and 11.9 minutes. He made 29 three-pointers (89 attempts, .326) to rank third on the team in that category.

Temple is off until Thanksgiving night, when the Owls play California in the first round of the Old Spice Classic in Orlando, Fla.

In other Owls’ news, 6-1 point guard Will Cummings has signed a national letter of intent. Cummings plays for the Providence School in Jacksonville, Fla.

“Will is an outstanding young man from a wonderful family and he will be a great addition to our basketball program,” Temple coach Fran Dunphy said in a statement. “We are looking forward to great things from him during his Temple career.”

Cummings averaged 10 points, six assists, three rebounds and three steals in helping Providence to Class AA Florida State Championship as a junior in 2009-10. He is ranked the 34th-best point guard by ESPN.com.
