Wesleyan Christian Academy’s (High Point, N.C.) boys’ basketball team, ranked No. 19 in the USA Today HSS Super 25, received a big blow last night after its, 52-50, quadruple overtime win over No. 18 Greensboro Day (Greensboro, N.C.); elite junior guard Kwe Parker learned that he’d broken his foot and is expected to be out two months.

“He wasn’t jumping or anything; it was a freak accident,” Wesleyan Christian coach Keith Gatlin said. “He was going through traffic on the drive and stepped on someone’s foot. He’ll have surgery next week, but he’s done for the high school season.”

Parker transferred to Wesleyan Christian this season and was the perfect complement to Harry Giles III, the No. 2 overall player in the ESPN 60.

Parker was averaging 14 points a game this season.

“We’ll have to have guys like Jalen Johnson and Michael Buckland to step up,” Gatlin said. “Kwe is our bulldog but the most important thing is to get him healthy.”

The Trojans are defending back-to-back state champions.

Here’s what the Trojans will miss from Parker.
