BLOOMINGTON – Indiana’s preparations for a likely NIT bid had a bit of bad luck on Saturday.
During a morning workout, freshman Collin Hartman tore the ACL in his right knee and will miss any postseason games which the Hoosiers might play.
“We did have a injury today. Collin Hartman planted his leg wrong in a drill and hurt his knee. The news is not good in that he has a Torn ACL and we are waiting to make sure that’s all,” said head coach Tom Crean in a statement release through the team. “Collin has been practicing well and getting better. This is a setback for him.
“Collin has a strong future with us and his summer will take a different turn. He is in great hands with this Medical staff. He will be evaluated more tomorrow. Keep him in your prayers.”
Hartman, who was an Indiana All-Star during his high school days at Cathedral, played sparingly in his first season in Bloomington. He played a total of 72 minutes scoring 11 total points and grabbing 15 rebounds.
