Houston All-America guard Jamal Shead turns foot awkwardly in Sweet 16 vs. Duke

DALLAS (AP) - Houston point guard Jamal Shead exited the Cougars' Sweet 16 game against Duke with 6 1/2 minutes left in the first half after his right foot turned awkwardly on a move to the basket Friday night. The All-American walked slowly off the floor and went to the locker room.

Shead was driving when he planted his foot and it turned, though he continued the play and missed a contested layup. Shead was in obvious pain when he went down on the floor under the basket, reached at his foot and then pulled his jersey up over his face.

After being tended to by an athletic trainer, Shead got up and walked slowly off the court.

Shead had two points on 1-of-5 shooting with three assists and two steals in the first 13 minutes.
