Marquette's Ellenson day to day with sprained left ankle

MILWAUKEE (AP) Marquette says star forward Henry Ellenson is day to day with a sprained left ankle.

The 6-foot-11 Ellenson could be an NBA draft lottery pick if he decides to leave school early. The Big East's leading rebounder got hurt after hitting a jumper in the second half of an 88-87 victory at home on Tuesday night against Georgetown.

Ellenson needed helped to return to the locker room while limping off the floor. He leads Marquette in scoring (16.4 points per game) and rebounding (9.9).

The Golden Eagles (19-11, 8-9) finish their regular season on Saturday at Butler.
