Three days prior to their season opener, Kevin Stallings and Pitt received some bad news.
The Pitt basketball program announced that guard Crisshawn Clark injured himself at practice yesterday and will miss the entire 2016-2017 season.
The basketball team says that Clark will undergo surgery to repair ligament and meniscus damage in his left knee. This is troubling because Clark also missed the entire 2015-16 season at Canada College with a left knee injury.
“We are very disappointed to see this happen to a terrific young man and an emerging player in our program,” said head coach Kevin Stallings. “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.”
