Lowe, who has played in 28 games, is averaging 4.8 points per game in 343 minutes this season.
“I visited Trey and his family on both Sunday and Monday at the hospital,” said coach Fran Dunphy in a university-issue statement. “Our thoughts and prayers are with them at this time and we are hopeful that he will make a full recovery.”
