Wisconsin Guard Trevor Anderson to Miss Remainder of 2018-19 Season

MADISON, Wis. – Wisconsin sophomore guard Trevor Anderson is scheduled to undergo knee surgery and will miss the remainder of the 2018-19 season, as announced by the UW Sports Medicine Staff on Thursday.

The redshirt sophomore hurt his knee after landing awkwardly on his right leg following a layup in the second half of UW’s 72-66 victory over Iowa last Friday.

“We wish Trevor all the best and he’ll have our full support as he goes through his surgery and rehab,” head coach Greg Gard said in a statement. “We look forward to having him back on the court with us in the future.”

It’s a tough blow to Anderson, who had to sit out last season after transferring from Green Bay. He appeared in eight games this season, averaging 6.9 minutes per game and totaling 13 points, nine rebounds and three assists.

His absence puts more pressure on true freshman guard Tai Strickland, who will undoubtedly see his minutes increase behind starter D’Mitrik Trice.

No.12 Wisconsin (8-1) plays at Marquette (7-2) Saturday afternoon.
