STORRS, Conn. (AP) -Connecticut guard Jerome Dyson requires surgery on his right knee and could miss the rest of the season.
Dyson was injured Wednesday night less than four minutes into the top-ranked Huskies' 63-49 win over Syracuse. He banged knees with a Syracuse player as he fought through a screen and had to be helped from the court.
An MRI Thursday revealed a torn lateral meniscus.
School officials say the junior will have surgery in the next week. They won't know his status for the rest of the season until surgery is done.
Dyson started all 24 games for UConn, averaging over 13 point per game. Coach Jim Calhoun called him a big part of UConn's 23-1 start and said he expects Dyson will be back for his senior year.
