The TCU men's basketball team already lost two starters to graduation after last season, but another key contributor to last years squad will also not see the court this upcoming season.
Forward Kenrich Williams told the Star-Telegram on Wednesday that he will have microscopic knee surgery on Friday, which will cause him to miss the season.
During his first year as a Horned Frog, Williams quickly entered the starting lineup and became TCU's best rebounder and defender. He led the Frogs with 6.7 rebounds a game while averaging 8.6 points per contest.
TCU head coach Trent Johnson had to convince Williams to get the surgery and take the season off as the junior from Waco was struggling with the decision, according to the Star-Telegram.
Washburn told the Star Telegram, “He’s somebody who guards every team’s best player, probably the best defender in the Big 12.”
