As most of you probably know by now, Xavier freshman Jay Canty will be out 4-6 weeks with a stress fracture in his right foot. Canty has played sparingly (9.5 minutes per game) so far but has appeared in every game. Canty's most notable role has been to provide decent defense while giving Dante Jackson and Jeff Robinson some time to breathe. Canty was averaging 1.3 rpg and 1 ppg at the time of his injury. While that was surely not the output that Coach Mack was hoping for from Jay, Canty had been making progress defensively and had began to speed a shot release that was laborious at the start of the season.
