Boston College sophomore guard Wynston Tabbs will miss the entirety of the Eagles’ upcoming season.

Tabbs is set to undergo surgery on his left knee, an injury that he has been nursing since last season, causing him to miss a significant portion of Boston College’s games. 

“While I won’t be able to play this season,  I know that it is a temporary setback and I will be back stronger than ever before,” Tabbs said in a press release from the school.  “I want to thank my family, the Boston College Basketball program, and all our fans for their continued support. I’ve overcome obstacles before in my life and will work tirelessly to overcome this one. I am built for this.”

As a freshman, Tabbs was the third-leading scorer for the Eagles, averaging 13.9 points per game over the course of 15 games. Tabbs was named ACC Rookie of the Week after a 28-point outburst against Sacred Heart in December.
