MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) -Kansas State senior forward Davis Hoskins will undergo surgery on his left knee and will not play this season, the school announced Saturday.
Hoskins, who has not played at all this season, was coming off a junior year in which he averaged 14.5 points and almost six rebounds. But coach Frank Martin said he will undergo a relatively new procedure on Feb. 1 in which meniscal tissue from a donor will be transplanted. The university said a donor match had been found.
Hoskins will need a rehabilitation period of about eight months.
``This is an extremely sad day for David and for our basketball program,'' Martin said. ``For him to find out on his last visit to the doctor that he is going to have reconstructive surgery and sit out the rest of his senior season is devastating.''
Martin said Hoskins might try to apply for a medical redshirt and be eligible for one more season.
