Washington's Scott Suggs to redshirt

NEW YORK -- Injured Washington guard Scott Suggs will redshirt this season after missing the first seven games with a foot injury.

Washington coach Lorenzo Romar made the announcement on Friday in a conference call with reporters ahead of the Huskies' game Saturday with No. 7 Duke at Madison Square Garden.

Suggs suffered a broken bone in his right foot in early October before practices began. He had surgery and was targeting the game against Duke as his possible return.

Suggs averaged 7.4 points and was third in the Pac-10 in 3-point percentage during his junior season. Suggs was one of just two scholarship seniors on the Huskies roster this season.
