The Stanford Cardinal suffered a big loss on Friday when the university announced point guard Aaron Bright will miss the remainder of the season with a dislocated right shoulder.

Bright, a senior, was hurt in practice last week and did not play when the Cardinal beat South Dakota State at Maples Pavilion on Sunday.

In seven games, Bright was averaging 19.3 minutes a game—most of any Stanford reserve—and posted averages of 5.9 points and 2.3 assists per game, shooting 35.7 percent from the floor and 38.9 percent from 3.

He started 22 games as a junior and averaged 9.3 points and a team-best 3.4 assists per game and was the Most Outstanding Player of the NIT when Stanford won the tournament in 2012. He averaged 11.7 points and 3.6 assists as a sophomore, playing 28.4 minutes a game.

He finishes his career 10th on Stanford’s all-time list with 315 assists and is on target to receive a degree in science, technology and society in June.

The Cardinal (6-2) are in the middle of a 13-day break and won’t play again until Dec. 14, when they host UC Davis.
