Northwestern forward Jared Swopshire had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Tuesday and will miss the rest of the 2012-13 season.
Swopshire was hurt in the second half of the Feb. 9 game at Iowa.
"We all feel badly for Jared that he won't be able to play out the remainder of his final collegiate season," Northwestern head men's basketball coach Bill Carmody said in a statement. "He has been a terrific addition to the program, both on and off the court. He was enjoying a very productive year and was playing his most consistent basketball of the season when the injury occurred. There is every indication that he'll experience a full recovery."
The graduate student started 24 games this season, and averaged 9.7 points and 6.7 rebounds per game. He scored a career-high 22 points against Mississippi Valley State on Nov. 15, and recorded a career-best 16 rebounds at Nebraska Jan. 26.
