(Neb.)-Huskers lose Peltz, Ubel to injury
Nebraska Men's Basketball Coach Tim Miles announced Friday afternoon that junior guard Mike Peltz will undergo season-ending knee surgery. The 6-foot-2 junior guard from Alliance has played in 14 of the Huskers' first 16 contests, averaging 2.1 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.1 points per game in over 15 minutes of action per contest.
Peltz will have a patella tendon debridement on his left knee, and the typical rehab schedule for the surgery is three to four months, allowing him to be at 100 percent for offseason workouts.
Miles also announced that senior Brandon Ubel will be out for Sunday's game against No. 22 Michigan State because of an elbow injury.
Ubel suffered the injury in the final minutes of Wednesday's loss at No. 2 Michigan and will not play against the Spartans. The 6-foot-10 senior is Nebraska's leading rebounder at 6.8 rebounds per game and third-leading scorer at 12.1 points per game.
