Briscoe was removed from the starting lineup around 15 minutes before tip-off, and was replaced by Charles Matthews. CBS’ game crew later reported at the beginning of the game that Briscoe would not play.
A few reporters noticed him struggling to make it through the layup line:
Briscoe has averaged 11.5 points, 5.6 rebounds and 3.1 assists in 10 games for the 9–2 Wildcats.
