ATLANTA (AP) -Georgia Tech senior center Ra'Sean Dickey, who has missed the first eight games of the season with an injury, will sit out the rest of the season as a redshirt.
Dickey will retain his final year of eligibility for the 2008-09 season.
Dickey (6-10, 250), has acute tendinitis in his right knee.
``Ra'Sean is just not healthy,'' said Georgia Tech coach Paul Hewitt, who said Dickey also has problems with his left knee. ``It is in his best interest at this point to get healthy, and he is assured of graduating in the spring of 2009 if he continues on his current schedule academically.''
Dickey's redshirt plan was announced before Georgia Tech's game against No. 3 Kansas on Tuesday night.
Dickey has career averages of 8.7 points and 5.1 rebounds in his three seasons. He averaged 8.1 points per game last season.
``I've decided that it's best for me to stay on my present course, concentrate on my academics and do everything I can to get healthy so hopefully I can play another season and get my degree,'' Dickey said.
