Xavier Guard Brad Redford Out For Season With ACL Tear

Xavier University Released the following statement:

Xavier University announced today that junior guard Brad Redford suffered a left knee anterior cruciate ligament tear that will require reconstructive surgery.

Xavier University Head Team Physician Robert R. Burger, M.D., said: "Brad Redford suffered a left knee anterior cruciate ligament tear during a practice session yesterday. Because of the nature of the injury, he will undergo reconstructive surgery sometime in the near future. We anticipate Brad will miss the 2010-11 season but will make a full recovery for the future."

Redford, who had earned a reputation as one of the nation's top three-point shooters, played in 66 games in his first two seasons as a Musketeer, averaging 5.2 ppg. Redford, who finished first in the Atlantic 10 Conference in three-point shooting percentage as a freshman with a school-record 46.5 percent accuracy, finished second as a sophomore at 42.5 percent. Out of his 108 career field goals, 101 of those were three-pointers.

Redford earned Michigan "Mr. Basketball" honors during his record-breaking career at Frankenmuth High School.
