No. 9 Iowa loses forward Nunge to season-ending knee injury
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) Iowa forward Jack Nunge will miss the rest of the season after injuring his right knee in the Hawkeyes third-place loss in Michigan on Thursday.
School officials said the 6-foot-11 sophomore has a torn meniscus and is expected to have surgery next week. Nunge averaged 7.1 points and 5.3 rebounds per game.
This is the second time in a little over a year that Nunge has suffered a knee injury at the end of the season. On November 24, 2019, he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in the same knee.
"Jack has been through so much and we all feel terrible for him," Iowa coach Fran McCaffery said in a statement. '' He played really well and made great strides this year before another unfortunate setback. Jack is loved and respected by his teammates, and everyone in our program will support Jack in his recovery. We look forward to having him back on the pitch next season. ''
