Patrick "Spader" Mills suffered two fractured metacarpal bones in his right hand in the final minutes of the first half against Gonzaga. Mills’ return to the Saint Mary’s lineup could be as soon as four weeks.
Mills scored 18 points in 17 minutes against the Bulldogs as he tied a school record making six 3-pointers in the first half.
Patty is the Gaels’ leading scorer, averaging 18.7 points per game while shooting 42.4 percent from the floor and 36.2 percent from 3-point land. He is also the team’s leader in assists (77) and steals (47).
The Spader team hopes Patty has a speedy recovery. Get well soon Spader!!
