Jon Hood Tears ACL in Pick-up Game

Kentucky guard Jon Hood tore his ACL Tuesday during a pick-up basketball game. The injury is devastating for Hood who was working to gain a spot in John Calipari’s rotation for this coming season. There was no time table offered for Hood’s recovery as doctors were waiting for inflammation to subside before performing surgery.

Hood, entering his junior season at UK, has struggled for playing time under Calipari. It was hoped that his veteran leadership could help with a young backcourt this coming season. It would appear that Hood will likely redshirt this season, making his earliest return for the 2012-13 season.
