Florida guard Chris Chiozza sprains shoulder in exhibition

Nov 3, 2017 - 12:35 AM JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Florida point guard Chris Chiozza sprained his left shoulder in the team's exhibition opener at Jacksonville on Thursday night. Chiozza injured his shoulder in the opening minutes of the game, headed to the bench, tried to return and ended up in the locker room. He eventually returned to the bench but did not get back on the floor. The senior averaged 7.2 points, 3.8 assists and 3.3 rebounds last season in a backup role. He is expected to be the primary ball-handler for the eighth-ranked Gators this season. Chiozza ranked second on the team with 48 steals last season and made 30 3-pointers, none bigger than his running trey at the buzzer to stun Wisconsin and send Florida to the NCAA Tournament's Elite Eight. The Gators open the season Nov. 13 against Gardner-Webb. ___ More AP college basketball: www.collegebasketball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP_Top25
