Tennessee senior associate athletic trainer Chad Newman has reported that junior basketball player Jeronne Maymon underwent arthroscopic surgery to address a torn meniscus of his right knee Tuesday at UT Medical Center.
Newman said the surgery went well, but it is too early to determine a timeframe for Maymon's return to activity.
A second-team All-SEC forward from Madison, Wis., Maymon enjoyed a breakout campaign for the Volunteers this season. He averaged 12.7 points and a team-best 8.1 rebounds on the year while shooting .558 from the field. In SEC play, he led the team in scoring, rebounding, field-goal percentage and steals. He also recorded nine double-doubles on the year and led Tennessee with 18 charges drawn.
Maymon started all 32 games for the Vols leading up to the NIT before soreness in his right knee forced him to miss UT's first-round win over Savannah State. In Tennessee's second-round game Monday night, he came off the bench to lead the Vols with 17 points and seven rebounds.
