California guard Tyrone Wallace will be out three to five weeks after sustaining a fracture in his right head, meaning the Golden Bear’s top player will miss the entire NCAA tournament, the school announced Thursday.

The injury to Wallace’s non-shooting hand occurred during practice Wednesday night. 

Wallace also missed five games earlier this season with a fractured right hand.

The 6'5" senior leads the Golden Bears with an average of 15.3 points, 4.4 assists, 1.0 steals and 32.2 minutes per game this season.
