Injury takes out PSU point guard
STATE COLLEGE – Penn State point guard Tim Frazier will miss the rest of the season with a ruptured left Achilles tendon, a devastating blow for the rebuilding Big Ten program.
Frazier was injured about six minutes into the Nittany Lions’
85-60 loss Sunday to Akron at the Puerto Rico Tipoff.
Coach Patrick Chambers said Frazier underwent surgery Tuesday, with a recovery period of 6-12 months. The team plans to apply for a fifth year of eligibility for Frazier on a medical redshirt.
