Needham done for the season

Just got a text message from Fairfield coach Sydney Johnson.

Junior point guard Derek Needham has a fractured bone in his left foot. He’s done for the season.

Needham injured the foot with 11:57 to play in the first half Friday night at Iona. He went to the basket and landed hard on the foot. He limped to the bench and came out for second half on crutches.

More to come from Stags beat writer Bill Paxton after the MAAC conference call at noon.

Needham was the Stags second leading scorer this season, averaging 11.8 points and 3.4 assists a game.
