Virginia guard Malcolm Brogdon to redshirt season

Peter Casey-US PRESSWIRE

Malcolm Brogdon will have to wait another year to make his impact felt at Virginia.

Malcolm Brogdon of the Virginia Cavaliers will redshirt the 2012-13 season as he continues to recover from offseason foot surgery, according to Jeff Goodman of CBS.

The loss of Brogdon is a hit to the hopes of the Cavaliers. The second-year player was promising as a freshman, serving mostly as the sixth man for Virginia. Unfortunately, Brogdon broke a bone in his left foot, leaving him to need surgery and a legthy recovery process that has now made him redshirt.

In his initial collegiate year, Brogdon averaged 6.7 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game.

Brogdon's best game of last season came against a ranked Michigan Wolverines team, in which he put up 16 points. In the ACC portion of the schedule, he showcased his skills against the Maryland Terrapins, scoring 14 points.

By redshirting, Brogdon gives himself three more years of eligibility under NCAA rules. He can return in the 2013-14 campaign as a redshirt sophomore.
