Vandy’s Darius Garland to miss rest of season for knee injury


Darius Garland, the freshman guard from Nashville, will miss the remainder of Vanderbilt University’s basketball season due to a knee injury.  

Garland suffered a meniscus injury to his left knee during the game against Kent State on Nov. 23. 

He has since undergone surgery.  

“Darius had a very successful surgery, and will be better than ever when he returns,” said Coach Bryce Drew. “Unfortunately, he will be out for the remainder of this season.” 

Garland, who has already been named SEC Freshman of the Week for his play this season, played in five games for the Commodores and averaged 16.2 points per game.   

He also scored 33 points against Liberty on November 19, the most by an SEC player this season.
