Drexel's Damion Lee Out For The Season With Torn ACL

One of the best shooters in the CAA is done for the year. - Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE

Drexel announced Monday that junior guard and preseason All-CAA first team selection Damion Lee will miss the remainder of the 2013-14 season with an injured right knee.

Drexel announced junior guard Damion Lee will miss the remainder of the 2013-14 season with a torn ACL in his right knee, on Monday. Lee was a preseason All-CAA first team selection and was averaging 13.2 points, 4.2 rebounds, 2.2 assists per game in 26.8 minutes per game.

"We all feel bad for Damion and what he is going through right now," head coach Bruiser Flint said in a statement. "He was going to be one of the top players in the CAA this season. We know he will work hard in his rehabilitation to be back on the court next season."

Lee injured his knee in Drexel’s NIT Tip-Off Semifinal loss to Arizona, with about 10 minutes left in the game. Last season, the Dragon’s lost Chris Fouch for the year with a broken ankle.

The loss of the 6-6, dynamic scorer from Baltimore, Md. is a devastating one for Flint and company. After struggling throughout last season, the Dragons had high expectations for this upcoming conference slate with Fouch back for his sixth year of eligibility and Frantz Massenat also graduating in the spring.

In Lee’s absence, Flint will need red-shirt sophomore Tavon Allen to continue scoring. Freshman Major Canady and Rodney Williams, who both played big minutes in Drexel’s triple-overtime victory over Alabama, will also be called upon to step up. Junior guard Freddie Wilson will also become eligible on Dec. 15 against Davidson after transferring from Seton Hall.

Drexel will be back in action against Cleveland State on Wednesday.
