USI’s Newsome out five weeks with broken foot

University of Southern Indiana junior center/forward Reque Newsome (St. Petersburg, Florida) will be out four to six weeks with a broken right foot. Newsome broke the third metatarsals during practice.

The Screaming Eagles are scheduled to open the exhibition season Saturday, November 9, when they host the Tornatta Stars at the Physical Activities Center. The first regular season game will be Saturday, November 23, when they host Wilberforce University at the PAC.
