Louisville point guard Quentin Snider is out 2-3 weeks with a strained hip flexor

Louisville point guard Quentin Snider is out 2-3 weeks with a strained hip flexor.

The University of Louisville announced on Monday night that junior point guard Quentin Snider will miss the next two or three weeks because of an injury he suffered in Saturday's win over Duke.

Snider suffered a strained hip flexor on a layup with 18:48 left in the game.

The 6-foot-2 guard played the rest of the game and had ice on his hip during postgame interviews. He won't need surgery on the injury.

A starter in every game this season, Snider is the second-leading scorer at 12.1 points and leads the team with 4.0 assists a game. He's third in the ACC and No. 32 nationally in assist-to-turnover ratio at 2.88.

Louisville is ranked No. 12 in the Associated Press poll with a record of 15-3, including 3-2 in the ACC. The Cardinals play host to Clemson on Thursday night at 9 o'clock and then go on the road for a Saturday afternoon game at No. 10 Florida State.

Tony Hicks and Ryan McMahon are expected to fill in for Snider, while Donovan Mitchell could also likely play some point guard.
