Villanova's Wayns has sprained ligament in knee

Villanova guard Maalik Wayns has a sprained medical collateral ligaement ligament in his left knee, the school said.

Wayns did not practice yesterday and underwent an MRI exam. He was injured in Tuesday's win over Providence.

“It will be a day-by-decision,” team orthopedist Dr. Rob Good said in a statement.

Villanova does not play again until next Wednesday night at South Florida and it is possible Wayns could be in the lineup for that game. He did not practice today.

Wayns is the Wildcats' leading scorer at 17.8 points and also averages 4.5 assists.
