Deontae Hawkins, a key player for the Boston College men’s basketball team, will miss the rest of the season because of a knee injury. Hawkins suffered the injury during a 71-62 loss to Nebraska Nov. 29.
Hawkins, a 6-foot-8-inch graduate transfer from Illinois State, was averaging 12.4 points per game and 9.1 rebounds. Both are statistics that coach Jim Christian is going to find difficult to replace.
“Teddy means so much to everyone in our program and he made a big impact in his time here,” Christian said in a statement. “He brought maximum effort to every practice and game and was a positive influence on both our veterans and our younger players. His leadership on and off the court will be missed.”
