Jontel Evans out six weeks

Virginia starting point guard Jontel Evans is expected to miss six weeks after having surgery to repair a stress fracture in his right foot.

Evans, a senior, underwent the surgery Tuesday after experiencing foot pain during practice last week, the school said in a release.

The 5-foot-11 Evans was an ACC All-Defensive Team selection last season, averaging 7.3 points and a team-leading 3.9 assists in 32 games. He also led the Cavaliers with 50 steals.

Virginia begins the 2012-13 season against George Mason on Nov. 9.
