ATHENS – Georgia basketball forward Jailyn Ingram suffered an apparent lower body injury in the Bulldogs’ 69-58 win over Jacksonville on Tuesday night at Stegeman Coliseum.
The FAU transfer, who was averaging 10.5 points and 6.4 rebounds per game going into Tuesday, went down at the 14:21 mark of the second half when he jumped for a lofty pass and landed awkwardly on his right leg. Ingram was helped off the floor.
“He’s an incredible young man and we don’t do what we’ve done to this point without him,” said an emotional UGA coach Tom Crean. “He’s getting better and if we don’t have him, we’ll just have to have other people that are going to step up and be even more.”
“When you see a non-contact injury, you can’t help but think the worst,” said Jabri Abdur Rahim. “When something like that happens especially to somebody that I consider a really close friend, one of our brothers, a leader of our team, a really good player and a really good person, you never want to see that stuff happen.”
