Grill averaged 9.5 points and 4.0 rebounds in 31.3 minutes per game for the Cyclones, who are on the fringes of the NCAA Tournament picture at the moment heading into the Big 12 conference tournament. Losing a rotation player at any time is tough but Grill is also a veteran who can make key plays in big moments. For a team that needs a deep run to have a chance at making the Big Dance, this is tough.
The Cyclones are currently on a four-game losing streak, putting them at 17-12 overall and 8-9 in conference play. They have a game against No. 7 Baylor which they absolutely need to win to have a shot at making the NCAA Tournament.
