SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Notre Dame forward Zach Auguste is expected to miss four to six weeks with a broken left hand.

Auguste played in 25 games last season as a freshman, averaging 3.7 points, 2.7 rebounds and 10.7 minutes. The school said he fractured the hand last week, and X-rays this week confirmed the break.

Coach Mike Brey called the injury unfortunate, saying he expects the 6-foot-10 Auguste to be a key player for the Irish this season. Notre Dame opens Nov. 8 against Miami of Ohio.
