Cedrick Lindsay's career at the University of Richmond is done due to chronic knee issues. The Washington, DC native was third in the Atlantic 10 in scoring this year averaging 18.3 points per game. Lindsay was also top ten in the conference in steals (1.8) and assists (4.0).

Lindsay was the clear cut leader for Chris Mooney's Spiders this year and this is certainly a huge hit. Lindsay played in 121 games for the Spiders and posted 1,276 points and 355 throughout his career. Lindsay scored in double-digits every game this year except a November 24 game against Fairfield.

Richmond, who is 14-8 and 4-3 in Atlantic 10 play, will host Saint Bonaventure on Wednesday. Junior guard Kendall Anthony is expected to takeover primary ball handling duties and expect ShawnDre' Jones and Wayne Sparrow to get more playing time in the Spiders' rotation.

This injury comes right on the heels of big man Derrick Williams leaving the program for "personal reasons".
