Drew Crawford to undergo season-ending surgery

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

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 team.

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.
