Northwestern loses Crawford for the season

Northwestern guard Drew Crawford, the team's second-leading scorer, will undergo shoulder surgery and will be lost for the remainder of the season, coach Bill Carmody announced Friday.

Crawford's injury is a torn labrum, acording to the school's website.

"Drew's situation is similar to Tre Demps' a year ago," Carmody said in a statement. "Drew aggravated a previous injury in early September and attempted to play through it, but it just hasn't responded as we all would have liked."

Crawford, a senior, has played in only 10 games this season, so he is eligible to apply to the NCAA for an injury waiver that would give him another year of eligibility.

Crawford is averaging 13.5 points and 4.6 rebounds this season for the Wildcats (7-3), and was a third-team All-Big Ten selection last season.
