Kentucky Sports Radio is reporting that, according to sources, UK junior Jon Hood has mono and will miss today’s game against Marshall.
UK has not confirmed that report. UK has now confirmed that Hood will be out, but says it is because of an upper respiratory infection.
Hood, who missed last season after undergoing surgery for a torn ACL, has played 28 minutes so far this season. He played nine minutes and scored three points last Saturday in UK’s win over Lipscomb. He scored a season-high six points in the Cats’ win over Samford on December 4.
