I am passing this along as a quick breaking news item, and I figure the Inquirer and Daily News beat guys will have more to say about it by the end of the day. I'll link to their coverage when it arrives.

It will be a big loss for 'Nova, but after watching the La Salle game it looks like it won't be as big a loss as we might have thought earlier in the season. It's certainly consequential, but Isaiah Armwood and Antonio Pena did well against the Explorers.

Of course, La Salle is not Syracuse or Connecticut or West Virginia. The remaining frontcourt players will have to stay out of foul trouble, which won't be easy. But there's still a lot of talent left.

How much of an impact do you think this will have?

UPDATE: MSNBC.com's Mike Miller weighs in with some analysis of his own that's pretty similar to what I've said, but in more depth.
