South Carolina freshman Moss will miss season
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.
