Dyson Out With Knee Tear
Dyson underwent an MRI Thursday afternoon at Windham Hospital in Willimantic and results showed the tear. He will undergo surgery within the next week, at which time it will be determined whether Dyson could return at some point this season.
Dyson's status is listed as "indefinite" right now, though a statement from coach Jim Calhoun makes it sound like Dyson is lost for the rest of the season.
“We are obviously all very disappointed for Jerome, who has been such a big part of why we are 23-1 and in first place in the BIG EAST,” said Calhoun. “I know that he will work hard in the offseason and be back next year as a major contributor to our future success. As for our team going forward this season, it is another challenge we will have to face. We have very good players who I know will rise to the occasion and fill the void left by Jerome’s absence.”
Dyson started all 24 games to date in 2008-09 and averaged 13.2 points per contest. He has reached double figures in 18 games and led the Huskies in scoring five times.
