College basketball: Northwestern's Crawford has season-ending surgery
Wildcats' alpha dog done
Drew Crawford is done for the season, a harsh blow for a Northwestern team thirsting to make its first NCAA tournament.
Crawford will seek a medical hardship waiver for a fifth season after undergoing shoulder surgery for a torn labrum. School officials are very confident the NCAA will grant that fifth season, saying he would not have been eligible had he played one more game, this exceeding 30 percent of NU’s games.
The swingman played in all 10 of NU’s game this season, and his numbers were down. After averaging 16.1 points per game last season on 48.4 percent shooting, he was scoring 13.5 points on 40 percent shooting.
