OAKLAND--Sophomore guard Crisshawn Clark sustained damage to left knee ligaments and his meniscus on Monday, meaning he'll undergo a surgery that will sideline him for the season.
Clark is a year removed from another operation to the same knee for ligament damage. He played the 2014-15 season at Canada College (JUCO), averaging 15 points per game to go with 5 rebounds and 3 assists.
“We are very disappointed to see this happen to a terrific young man and an emerging player in our program,” Pitt head coach Kevin Stallings said. “Crisshawn has worked tirelessly to improve on and off the court. He is a true team player who has done everything asked of him since his arrival here. His mental strength and character will enable him to tackle the surgery and rehab with the same effort and intensity that he brings to practice.”
Clark registered six minutes in Pitt's exhibition game against Pitt Johnstown last week.
