Evanston, IL (Sports Network) - Northwestern senior forward Drew Crawford will
miss the rest of the 2012-13 season because of a shoulder injury.
Crawford will undergo surgery in the near future to repaid a torn labrum in
his right shoulder after trying to play through the injury.
Over the first 10 games, Crawford averaged 13.5 points and 4.6 rebounds.
"Drew aggravated a previous injury in early September and attempted to play
through it, but it just hasn't responded as we all would have liked," Wildcats
head coach Bill Carmody said. "While it obviously hurts to lose a player of
Drew's caliber, it provides an opportunity for his teammates to step up and
Crawford is eligible to seek a medical hardship waiver.
