Quinndary Weatherspoon had become the face of Mississippi State basketball.
The sophomore guard, on a team full of freshmen this year, was supposed to be the star of the bunch following his own fantastic debut season in Starkville a year ago.
All that came to a crashing halt on Monday when Weatherspoon learned, just four games into the 2016-17 season, that he’ll miss the remainder of the year with a possible tear to the scapholunate ligament in his left wrist.
“I wish I could play with him in my last go-around,” Weatherspoon’s teammate and senior guard I. J. Ready said. “He’s a great player. Right now, it’s a little heartbreaking for us.”
