Gopher basketball’s Kalscheur out indefinitely due to hand injury

The University of Minnesota Gophers men’s basketball team lost one of its key leaders due to injury on Tuesday.

The program announced junior guard Gabe Kalscheur suffered a hand injury at practice.

Kalscheur will miss Wednesday night’s game against Indiana and is out indefinitely, according to the Gophers.

The Edina-native is averaging 9.2 points and 2.9 assists per game this season and is considered one of the best defenders on the team.

After Wednesday’s game, the Gophers have just four remaining regular season games scheduled before the Big Ten Tournament. Coming into Wednesday, Minnesota was ninth in the conference with a 13-8 record (6-8 in conference play).
