Louisville loses Marra for season

[stextbox id=”custom”]
Mike Marra suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in the University of Louisville basketball team’s 68-48 win over Lamar on Sunday and will miss the remainder of the season.

Marra went down with 12:17 remaining in the second half .  A magnetic resonance imaging test at Jewish Hospital on Sunday night revealed the damage.  Surgery will be scheduled later and the normal recovery time from an ACL reconstruction is 9-12 months.

    Ridiiculous. What else could possibly go wrong? CRP should have them wearing elbow and knee pads during practices. Games, too, if that’s permissible. Maybe they could file a waiver or appeal for it…

      Something may have gone right. Kevin Ware reportedly cleared after fall semester.

    The poor guy has a history of back trouble since he arrived here and now this? His three point range, when he’s “on”, will be missed.
