Indiana’s Creek out for year after freak injury

Posted: 10/10/2011 in Basketball, College Basketball, NCAAB
Indiana University junior guard Maurice Creek underwent surgery to repair a torn Achilles tendon in his left leg Monday, according to coach Tom Crean.
It is the third serious injury in the last two years for Creek. He had surgery to repair a broken left patella in December 2009 and suffered a stress fracture in his right patella last season.
His status for the upcoming season has yet to be determined.
“This is a devastating blow to someone who has worked so hard to get himself in a position to help with this program,” Crean said. “He is going to receive the best medical care possible and we will take his recovery one day at a time.”
Creek has appeared in 30 games for the Hoosiers — 25 starts — and has averaged 11.5 points a game while shooting 37.1 percent from three-point range.
