Van Burck Out With Stress Facture

Colorado true freshman center Marc Van Burck suffered a stress fracture in his foot and could end up redshirting this season.

Marc Van Burck, the 6-11 freshman, suffered a stress fracture recently. He practiced lightly Monday, then traveled with the team to New Mexico Tuesday but did not play in CU's 106-65 loss to the Lobos.

The injury is expected to take 4-6 weeks to heal. A team official indicated Thursday that Van Burck could end up redshirting this season as a result of the injury. That will be determined later.

Van Burck, from Star City, Saskatchewan, Canada, played six minutes in CU's opening game vs. Denver.

With Van Burck out, at least through the middle of December and possibly the season, the Buffs are down to two scholarship big men -- 6-9 junior Marcus King-Stockton and 6-10 freshman Sean Kowal.

The Buffs host Air Force at 7 p.m. Saturday.
