USC junior Jamie Lovemark, the 2007 NCAA champion, will miss a month after breaking his left little finger while playing basketball Feb. 19.
Lovemark, No. 4 in the Golfweek/Sagarin College Rankings, has finished in the top 10 in all four events this year for the Trojans, including a runner-up showing Feb. 6 at the UH Hilo Intercollegiate.
Lovemark said he hopes to return in time for the Morris Williams Intercollegiate in Austin, Texas, on March 30.
USC, the top-ranked team in the Golfweek’s rankings, won the CordeValle Collegiate to end the fall season, and opened the spring with a victory at the UH Hilo Intercollegiate.
