Clemson PG suffers knee injury, out against Georgia


by - Assoc. Editor -

Clemson point guard Shelton Mitchell sustained a non-contact knee injury in practice and will undergo a procedure today according to the Clemson Basketball Twitter account.

Mitchell will miss the Georgia game and was expected to be a big-time contributor this season with his passing ability running the point guard position. It's a tough break for Brownell and Co. because I was hearing great things about Mitchell throughout the offseason. No word yet on how long he will be out during the season.

He sat out last season after transferring from the Commodores, where he started 11 of 31 games for the Commodores. Mitchell averaged 4.3 points and 3.3 assists per game but also led Vandy with 103 assists.
