Vanderbilt Men’s Basketball sustained a major blow on Tuesday night just under an hour before their tip-off against No. 4 Alabama: Star center Liam Robbins suffered a sprained ankle injury at practice on Monday and is expected to be out for the next 4-6 weeks. The Hustler confirmed the story with a team spokesperson prior to the game. 

Robbins is leading the Commodores this season in points (13.2) and rebounds (5.9) per game. The senior forward sat out until February of last season with an undisclosed foot injury before appearing in the team’s final 15 games. Robbins is expected to return in mid-to-late February based on the given injury timeline.
