Poll question: Who replaces Scott Suggs if he can’t play?

Junior guard Scott Suggs sprained his left MCL Thursday and the preliminary prognosis is he’s doubtful for Saturday’s game at No. 12 Arizona.
It’s a terrible blow for the Huskies because Suggs had found a rhythm as a starter. He cracked the starting lineup nine games ago and after a pair of rocky starts, he strung together three double-digit scoring performances, including a team-high 18 points at Oregon State.
At 6 foot 6, Suggs is a big guard, who is quick enough to defend opposing point guards. Last night he defended Arizona State point guard Jamelle McMillan before being injured.
Coach Lorenzo Romar said Suggs will be re-evaluated today. Suggs told reporters the pain feels worse than the knee injury he suffered Nov. 24 against Michigan State.
He missed one game following the first knee injury and chances are he’ll sit out tomorrow as well.
If he’s out, then who’s in.
Romar was mum about possible replacements following Thursday’s 79-62 win at Arizona State.
Assuming Romar doesn’t opt for a big lineup, which may include 6-9 forward Darnell Gant, the leading candidates to replace Suggs are Venoy Overton, Terrence Ross and C.J. Wilcox. Each of the reserves have improved recently and their playing their best basketball of the season.
So what would you do? Chime in and we’ll post the results later on.
