Hubert will undergo surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament in the coming weeks. He will not be able to play again this season.
A forward from Cream Ridge, N. J., Hubert played in 113 games as a Tar Heel, including 18 games he started in 2012-13. This season he appeared in 21 games, recording 7 points and 22 rebounds.
“Desmond is our best defensive post player and a wonderful kid who helps us in so many ways that fans don’t see each day but our coaches and his teammates appreciate,” says Carolina head coach Roy Williams. “I just hate it for the youngster that he won’t be able to play any more in his senior season. Desmond is a great teammate and they will rally around him and give him plenty of support.”
