NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Oklahoma basketball coach Lon Kruger says guard Isaiah Cousins is expected to recover after he was struck by a stray bullet in his hometown of Mount Vernon, New York.

Mount Vernon Police Deputy Commissioner Richard Burke says Cousins was walking with friends Tuesday when he was hit by a bullet from an exchange of gunfire a street away.

Kruger says Cousins was struck in the back of the shoulder but that he won’t need surgery. Kruger says neither Cousins nor his friends were the intended target and that Cousins was apparently in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Cousins averaged 11 points per game and started all 33 games for the Sooners last year. Kruger says Cousins will join the team for summer activities in June.
