Drew Crawford to undergo season-ending surgery
Northwestern’s Drew Crawford
will undergo surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder and will
miss the remainder of the season, coach Bill Carmody announced Friday.
The senior forward is eligible
to seek a medical hardship waiver, according to a statement released by the
Drew’s situation is similar to
Tre Demps’ a year ago,” Carmody said in the statement. “Drew aggravated a
previous injury in early September and attempted to play through it, but it
just hasn’t responded as well as we would have liked.”
Crawford has started all 10
games for Northwestern this season and was averaging 13.5 points per game after
averaging 16 points per game last season.
Crawford’s injury is the second
blow to Northwestern’s hopes of qualifying for the NCAA Tournament for the
first time in school history. In October, junior guard JerShon Cobb had been
suspended for the season for academic reasons.
