Sammy Zeglinski to undergo knee surgery Tuesday
Virginia redshirt junior guard Sammy Zeglinski is scheduled to undergo surgery to repair cartilage in his left knee Tuesday, the team announced in a statement Sunday. According to the statement, Zeglinski injured the knee during a workout earlier this month.
It remains unclear at this point how much time Zeglinski will miss while recovering from the procedure. The statement said Zeglinski's rehabilitation will be determined following Tuesday's operation.
"I feel for Sammy," Virginia Coach Tony Bennett said in the statement. "He has worked hard to get ready for this season, and he's an integral part of our team. I know he'll work hard and be diligent about is rehabilitation. Sammy is one of our more experienced players, and our other guards will need to step up in his absence."
Zeglinski has led the team in assists, three-point field goals and steals in each of the past two seasons. He started 29 of 31 games last season, averaging 8.9 points, 3.8 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.2 steals per contest. He shot 37.7 percent (61 for 162) from three-point range.
