Ashton Pankey to have season-ending surgery

By Liz Clarke

Maryland Coach Gary Williams announced Wednesday that freshman forward Ashton Pankey will return home to undergo season-ending leg surgery.

Pankey, a 6-9 power forward, scored five points and grabbed five rebounds in the Terps’ exhibition victory over Florida Southern on Nov. 1 and played three minutes in the season-opener against Seattle on Nov. 8. The goal of the surgery is to correct a stress fracture in his left leg that sidelined him his senior year at St. Anthony High School and limited his available for the Terps this season.

Hopefully those 3 minutes won't hinder his ability to get a red shirt this season. This class could be helped be breaking it up a bit so Gary doesn't end up with 5 guys leaving at the same time (Howard, Stoglin, Paulson, Parker, and Pankey).

It is a little disturbing that this injury has lingered for so long, and why surgery wasn't performed last year. Obviously Pankey's personal doctors felt that he could rehab the injury. I hope he doesn't turn into another Jerome Burney.
