EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) - Northwestern says forward Jared Swopshire will miss the remainder of the season after having arthroscopic surgery on his right knee on Tuesday.
A graduate student who transferred from Louisville, Swopshire started all 24 games and averaged 9.7 points and 6.7 rebounds. He was injured Saturday at Iowa, another big blow for a team that had already lost one of its best players in Drew Crawford to a season-ending shoulder injury in December.
Northwestern (13-11, 4-7 Big Ten) plays Thursday night at No. 13 Ohio State.
