Tom Crean reveals key Georgia player to miss rest of season after ACL injury
Tom Crean and the Georgia Bulldogs have struggled this year, but they’re coming off of 2-straight wins, including an upset over a then-ranked Memphis squad.
However, one of the bright spots for the team — Jailyn Ingram — will now miss the rest of the season, according to Crean.
Crean shared on Twitter that Ingram was having surgery to repair an ACL injury in his right knee:
Unfortunately, Jailyn Ingram will have to have surgery to repair his ACL in his right knee. It’s heartbreaking because Jailyn has been emerging in so many areas and has been a model of consistency day in and day out. He’s an incredible young Man. We will help him in every way. pic.twitter.com/lGTCFXk89f

Ingram was in his first year at Georgia after starting his career at FAU. He was averaging 10.7 points, 6.0 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game so far this season.
