AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State basketball coach Fred Hoiberg says Bubu Palo will be out 6 to 8 weeks because of a fractured wrist. The sophomore guard from Ames injured his wrist in Iowa State’s (11-3) victory against Mississippi Valley State on December 31st. He played in the Cyclones’ 77-71 win against Texas in the Big 12 opener for both teams on Wednesday. Hoiberg says MRI results on Thursday confirmed a “slight crack” in Palo’s shooting hand.
