Men’s basketball freshman forward Patricio Garino will have leg surgery over the upcoming offseason, he tweeted yesterday.
Garino, who wore a brace over his left knee over the end of the Colonials’ season, said that he has a torn meniscus and a tibia bruise.
Athletics communications reported that Garino’s surgery will likely occur this week, and the timetable for recovery is slated at four to six weeks.
The forward finished the season averaging 42.7 percent shooting, averaging 8.8 points for third-most for the Colonials, and recording 68 total steals, the most on the team. He was also fourth for GW in rebounding, averaging 3.4 per game.
