Indiana’s Creek out for rest of season
Indiana coach Tom Crean says his team’s top scorer Maurice Creek
fractured his left knee and will have surgery Tuesday.
Crean made the announcement following Indiana’s 90-42 victory
over Bryant on Monday night. He said he expects Creek to miss the
rest of the season.
Creek, the nation’s top freshman scorer at 17.6 points per
game, was hurt when trying to put in a layup with 15:26 left in the
game and the Hoosiers holding a 57-23 lead. After being fouled, he
landed awkwardly on his leg and crumbled to the ground.
Trainers examined Creek for several minutes. A couple of
Indiana players were ready to carry Creek to the locker room, but
they placed him in a chair underneath the basket and took him off
on a stretcher.
