Georgia Tech freshman point guard Travis Jorgenson‘s worst fears were confirmed today. After undergoing an MRI on the injured knee he suffered against Dayton on Wednesday night, it was announced that Jorgenson has a torn ACL and will miss the remainder of the season.
The Columbia, Mo. product sustained the injury in the second half of the game, and it was hoped that Jorgenson had just tweaked a knee injury he had suffered before the season. Surgery to repair the ligament will be scheduled within the next few weeks.
“This is unfortunate for Travis and a loss for us,” said head coach Brian Gregory. “He had put in a lot of work and was poised to have a very good freshman year. But we know he’s going to get the best treatment and rehab possible, and with his work ethic, he’ll make a full recovery and be back on the court next year.”
Jorgenson was having a promising start off the bench, and looked to become one of the better passers on the team, and was averaging about 19.5 minutes per game, scoring 4.2 points with 2.5 assists.
