Graham Ike, the Mountain West preseason player of the year, will miss an "extended period of time" after suffering a lower-leg injury.

Head coach Jeff Linder made the announcement Friday morning. The Cowboys open the season against Colorado Christian on Monday at the Arena-Auditorium.

Ike was second in the MW in scoring (19.5 points per game) and rebounding (9.6 rpg) while leading UW to an NCAA Tournament berth last season.
