Virginia isn’t likely to have redshirt junior Sammy Zeglinski (left) when it faces Washington Nov. 22 in the first game of the Maui Invitational.
He’s scheduled to undergo surgery to repair cartilage in his left knee today, according to a statement from the Cavaliers.
“The operation will involve cartilage work and the duration of Zeglinski’s rehabilitation will be determined after the surgery,” the statement says.
Zeglinski injured the knee during a workout in early October.
Losing Zeglinski, a 6-foot-, 185-pound guard, is a major blow to a Cavaliers team that’s short on veterans and breaking in seven freshmen. He was the team’s second leading returning scorer, who averaged 8.9 points last season.
Zeglinski led Virginia in three-pointers the past two seasons, including 61 last season. He was also the team’s leader in assists and steals categories despite moving to shooting guard.
Zelinski has has injury-prone career at Virgina. He suffered an ankle injury in his freshman season that eventually gave him an extra year of eligibility and he he’s still recovering from offseason hip surgery
