Basketball Roundup | Jackson's Brett Kingma out for season
A broken arm will keep sophomore Brett Kingma, Jackson's leading scorer, out for the rest of the basketball season.
Scores & stats
Jackson sophomore Brett Kingma is out for the season after breaking his left arm in Tuesday's game at Lynnwood, Timberwolves boys basketball coach Steve Johnson said Wednesday.
Kingma, a 6-foot-2 guard averaging 20.1 points, suffered the injury early in Jackson's 46-41 win when he was fouled while making a layup. His expected recovery time after surgery is 6 to 8 weeks.
"Obviously, it's a devastating blow for us," Johnson said. "He's arguably the best player in the league."
Kingma has multiple college scholarship offers, including one from Gonzaga. He averaged 17.4 points as a freshman last season, when he was a second-team All-WesCo South selection.
He is expected to make a full recovery.
