Marquette Golden Eagles Men's Basketball guard Tyler Kolek will sit out the last two regular season games.

Kolek injured his oblique muscle during the February 28th game against Providence, forcing him to sit out of the March 3rd game against Creighton. The Golden Eagles conclude their regular season by hosting UConn on Wednesday and then traveling to Xavier Saturday.

Kolek will be re-evaluated before the Big East Conference tournament running from March 13-16th. The Golden Eagles have earned a first-round bye, and don't play until March 14th.

Kolek is an All-American candidate who leads the nation in assists. He contributes, on average, 15 points and 4.7 rebounds per game, while shooting 48.6% from the floor in an average of 32.4 minutes per night.
