McCollum done at Lehigh? Lehigh coach Brett Reed is preparing for life without preseason all-American C.J. McCollum. Reed said there was a distinct possibility McCollum may have played his last game at Lehigh.

McCollum, who has a potentially lucrative future in the NBA, suffered a broken left foot last week in a game against Virginia Commonwealth. He underwent what the school deemed "successful surgery" Tuesday.

The estimated recovery time is eight to 10 weeks. The time line could make him available in early March.
