Wallace update

UW has released official word today that Artem Wallace suffered a torn ACL and lateral bone contusions when he was injured last Wednesday against Valparaiso.
He is scheduled for surgery April 8.
UW trainers say normal recovery time for such a surgery is 6-9 months.
At six months, Wallace would be ready for the start of practice Oct. 15.
At nine months, Wallace wouldn’t be ready until the end of December or so, but would be ready for the beginning of Pac-10 play.
As reported here last week, however, UW coach Lorenzo Romar anticipates Wallace playing next season.
Wallace, who will be a senior next season, was injured when his knee buckled as he planted in an attempt to block a shot early in the first half of what turned out to be UW’s final game of the season against the Crusaders.
