Fontan Injures Knee

| No Comments

USC point guard Jio Fontan suffered what is currently diagnosed as a sprained knee during the Trojans 81-70 loss in the third game of the Brazil tour.

The senior is flying back to Los Angeles and will have an MRI tomorrow to determine the full extent of the damage.

Head coach Kevin O'Neill is fearing the worst.  Asked how bad the knee injury was on a scale from 1-10, O'Neill replied, "10," Baxter Holmes of the LA Times reported.

Fontan tweeted late last night, "Minor setback for a major comeback!"  The Fordham transfer was playing the best basketball of his USC career on this trip averaging 28.5 points per game in the first two contests.
