NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee State forward Christian Mekowulu will have season-ending surgery to repair an ACL torn in practice.

Tigers coach Dana Ford announced the surgery Thursday.

The 6-foot-9 sophomore from Lagos, Nigeria, averaged eight points and 5.3 rebounds per game in 26 games last season.

Ford says it’s sad because Mekowulu had the best offseason among the Tigers but will be able to redshirt and return next season.
