Indiana Guard Maurice Creek Out For The Season

 

Indiana guard Maurice Creek will have season-ending knee surgery Thursday, according to basketball coach Tom Crean. This will be Creek's second knee surgery in a little more than 12 months. He suffered a stress fracture in the patella of his right knee late in Saturday's 80-61 victory over Michigan.

Creek, a sophomore guard, missed the entire Big Ten season last year after suffering a fractured knee cap in his left knee. "You can't imagine how big a blow it is to him,'' Crean said. "It's a tough, tough situation and I hope everyone will think about him and say a prayer for Mo and his family.''

The loss of Creek comes at a tough time for an Indiana squad that is struggling to find wins in the Big Ten. Creek has proven in his short tenure at Indiana to be a talented player with a lot of promise when healthy. Heading into the season Creek was expected to be an important part of the offense and was averaging around 8 points a game. While Creek's production has fallen off from last season he was still averaging 20 minutes a game and playing an important role in the Hoosier's offense.

As always, we wish those injuried on and off the court a speedy recovery.
