WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Hours before UNCW’s men’s basketball team was scheduled to play at North Carolina, one of the team’s reserve guards indicated he will miss some playing time.
Jacque Brown, a 5-foot-10 senior, tweeted Wednesday afternoon that he is having surgery.
WECT's John Smist confirmed it's a knee surgery for Brown, whose season is most likely over. Smist said Brown has a chance to redshirt and possibly return next season.
Brown, who came to UNCW from Cape Fear Community College, played in three games this season and scored eight points on 3-of-3 field goal shooting — including two 3-pointers — in a Nov. 9 home loss against Stanford.
In 25 games played with UNCW, Brown is averaging 2.8 points and 1.3 assists per game.
