ROCK HILL, S.C. (AP) -- Winthrop has suffered another setback with the loss of starting point guard Reggie Middleton.

Middleton broke the fibula in his right leg late in the Eagles' overtime loss to VMI on Wednesday night. The 6-foot-1 freshman from Augusta, Ga., had moved into the starting lineup eight games ago.

Middleton fell to the floor with a little over five minutes remaining in regulation. The school said that X-rays taken Thursday revealed the fracture. Middleton will have surgery next week and miss the rest of the season.

He had averaged 5.7 points a game this season. The Eagles had earned eight NCAA tournament berths since 1999, but at 6-15 are going through their worst season in a decade.
