Travis Jorgenson Injured vs. Dayton, To Have Knee Evaluated


The Georgia Tech men’s basketball team was handed their first loss of the season by the Dayton Flyers, and could have possibly lost an important bench player in the process.

Freshman PG Travis Jorgensen was injured while attempting a layup, and looks to have possibly re-injured his knee. Jorgenson has come into the Yellow Jackets’ program with high hopes, and has played some great minutes off the bench in the early going of the 2013 season.

Coach Brian Gregory said that Jorgenson will undergo an MRI on Thursday to get a better idea of the extent of the injury.

The freshman out of Columbia, Mo. is averaging 5.0 ppg, 2.7 assists and 1.7 steals per game so far this season, and is considered to be a potential starting point guard in the future for the Yellow Jackets.
