Hooper Vint, the 6-foot-10 freshman from Arkansas, will probably redshirt this season. Vint has been sidelined by a bulging disc in his back. He has rested it some and practices some with the team but a redshirt season seems almost inevitable.
Malcolm Moore will be out for the rest of the season with a torn ACL. The Miners hope to get him a medical redshirt season. Moore played in seven games before injuring his right knee in practice.
Freshman Julian Washburn will now be wearing jersey No. 4. The Miners will retire Tim Hardaway's No. 10 Saturday night at halftime, with Hardaway there to be a part of the ceremonies. Washburn had been wearing No. 10.
The Miners now have four jersey numbers retired — 10 (Hardaway), 14 (Nate Archibald), 42 (Nolan Richardson) and 45 (Jim Barnes).
