Villanova's Bell injured

Villanova freshman guard James Bell was diagnosed with stress fractures in the tibia of both legs and will be sidelined from basketball activities for an undetermined period of time.

Bell is scheduled to be re-evaluated in October.

"We're disappointed for James," coach Jay Wright said in a statement. "He has acclimated himself very well academically and socially at Villanova in his short time with us. I am sure he will take that same kind of mature approach with his rehab. We don't know how long he will be out, but we will monitor his rehab closely."

Bell. 6-5, was a third team high school All-American selection by USA Today and a fourth team selection by Parade Magazine after averaging 18.3 points, 6.0 rebounds and 4.3 steals per game during his senior season at Montverde Academy in Orlando, Fla.
