Nebraskaโ€™s Bandoumel to miss the remainder of season due to injury

The Nebraska menโ€™s basketball team has announced that senior guard Emmanuel Bandoumel will miss the remainder of the season due to injury. The Quebec City native suffered a knee injury in Saturdayโ€™s game at Penn State.

Bandoumel joined the Husker program after playing the three previous seasons at Southern Methodist. This year he had started all 20 games averaging 8.4 ppg, 4.8 rpg and 2.3 apg.

Fred Hoiberg made the announcement on Monday afternoon.ย 

โ€œI am heartbroken for Emmanuel to have his college career end this way. Iโ€™ve said all season that Emmanuel is one of the best defenders in the country, and he impacts the game in so many ways beyond the measurables. He is also one of the best culture guys Iโ€™ve had the pleasure to coach. He always comes into the gym with a positive attitude and will do anything for the team. While he canโ€™t help us on the court, I know Emmanuel will continue to be a leader for us and help our younger guys.โ€

This is the second major injury in as many weeks for the Cornhuskers. Juwan Gary suffered a season-ending shoulder injury last week.ย 

The Cornhuskers are 10-10 this year and will host the Northwestern Wildcats on Wednesday at 6:00 pm.
