South Carolina fresh­man Moss will miss sea­son

The Island Packet - - Sports - As­so­ci­ated Press

South Carolina fresh­man point guard T.J. Moss will miss the rest of the sea­son after hav­ing an­kle and foot surgery this week.

Game­cocks coach Frank Martin said Fri­day that Moss will take a med­i­cal red­shirt. Moss is ex­pected to make a com­plete re­cov­ery and re­turn next sea­son.

Moss suf­fered a right high an­kle sprain and reag­gra­vated a pre­vi­ous foot in­jury at prac­tice Dec. 18.

The 6-foot-2 guard from Mem­phis, Ten­nessee, played in seven games and started three in a row against Coastal Carolina, Wyoming and No. 2 Michi­gan be­fore get­ting hurt.

He played 20 min­utes a game and av­er­aged 6.3 points per con­test. He had a sea­son-best 12 points in a 76-67 loss to Prov­i­dence in Novem­ber.

Travel is­sues due to a win­ter storm have led to post­pone­ment of Saturday’s game vs. Mis­souri. The teams are in con­tact with the SEC about pos­si­ble makeup dates.
