Zags' Tillie out for remainder of regular season

Mark Few said in an interview that junior forward Killian Tillie will not return for the rest of the Zags' regular season. However, Few is hopeful Tillie will return for postseason.

After an injury took Zags junior forward Killian Tillie off the court Friday night, Head Coach Mark Few announced Saturday Tillie will not return for the rest of the regular season.

Few told Stadium Tillie partially tore his Plantar Fascia. While Few anticipates this will prevent him from finishing regular season play, he is hopeful Tillie will be able to return for the postseason. 

This is the second time in the 2018-2019 season Tillie is out for an injury. He was out for the first eight weeks of the season after re-aggravating an ankle injury during practice.
