Indiana just sent out a release confirming that sophomore swingman Austin Etherington has had surgery to repair a broken left patella and is out for the season. Because Etherington has only played in seven games, he is eligible for a medical redshirt. The release follows.
Etherington Undergoes Season Ending Surgery
Indiana University sophomore men’s basketball player Austin Etherington underwent surgery in Indianapolis this morning to repair a fractured patella he suffered in his left leg during the Hoosiers’ game last night against Central Connecticut State University. He will not return to action this season. The surgery was performed by Dr. Steve Ahlfeld.
Coach Tom Crean
“Anytime you lose a valued member of your program it not only hurts the team, but also everyone’s hearts. Austin has been doing an excellent job improving and now we have to help him overcome this setback and move forward. Our players have experience in this area and everyone is looking forward to helping him recover. As serious as his injury was, we are thankful that it was not worse. We have such an outstanding medical team I could not imagine going through something like this without them. We are fortunate to have them”
