ATLANTA (AP) -Georgia Tech forward Kammeon Holsey is preparing for knee surgery that will force him to miss the upcoming basketball season.
Holsey, a 6-foot-8 freshman, will have surgery on Tuesday to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. He was hurt while playing basketball on Aug. 1, the school said Monday.
Georgia Tech coach Paul Hewitt said the injury ``is obviously a blow to Kam'' but said a full recovery is expected.
Holsey is part of a freshman class ranked among the best in the nation.
