LEXINGTON, Ky. – UK men’s basketball freshman guard Sam Malone suffered a torn left ACL in Kentucky’s 87-62 win over Chattanooga on Saturday, UK head coach John Calipari announced.
There is no timetable on surgery or his return.
“Losing Sam Malone to an ACL injury is heartbreaking,” Calipari said. “He has been a great teammate and an even better person. You never want to hear someone is injured, but for Sam to go through his fourth knee injury is especially tough because he’s worked so hard to get where he is. He has become a valuable member of our team and quickly became a fan favorite. We look forward to Sam making a full recovery.”
Malone saw action in six games this season.
