LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Southern California forward Dewayne Dedmon broke his right hand above the knuckle of his index finger during an unofficial practice and his finger will be immobilized for 2-to-3 weeks.
Coach Kevin O'Neill said Wednesday that Dedmon got hurt the day before. On Thursday he will be fitted with a cast, which will allow him to practice defensive and non-contact drills. The Trojans begin official practice on Friday.
Dedmon, a 7-foot sophomore, transferred to USC from Antelope Valley (Calif.) College in January. He has three years of eligibility left.
