Virginia Tech's Ben Boggs probably out for season

Virginia Tech freshman Ben Boggs is likely out for the rest of the season after spraining his right ankle in a practice on Sunday afternoon, according to trainer Chad Hyatt.

Boggs, who played a bit role for the Hokies coming off the bench, suffered a Grade II ankle sprain in the latter portion of practice on Sunday before the NCAA tournament selection show. The Hokies (23-8) were left out of the field of 65 but play Quinnipiac (23-9) on Wednesday in the first round of the National Invitation Tournament.

Asked Tuesday whether Boggs could play this season, Hyatt said in a text message, "Probably done for season."

A scrappy guard, Boggs averaged 2.2 points, 1.4 rebounds and 0.6 assists per game in his first season in Blacksburg. He played in 25 games but started none. He scored a high of 10 points in a win over Longwood on Dec. 30, but his most memorable effort came in a win at Iowa on Dec. 1 in which he hit a pair of surprising three-pointers.

Earlier this month, Boggs was named the all-Atlantic Coast Conference academic team.
