Alabama Soph Braxton Key Undergoes Knee Surgery

Alabama star sophomore and top scorer Braxton Key suffered a left knee meniscus this week that requires surgery.

 

“I’ll be back soon! #bounceback #NoNoise,” Key wrote on Twitter.

 

The procedure was done on Tuesday and there is no date yet for his return.

 

“We’ll know more about his timeframe, how long he’s going to be out after surgery,” Alabama head coach Avery Johnson said via a statement.

 

The 6-8 forward led the team in scoring and was second in rebounding and assists last season, averaging 12 points, 5.7 boards, and 2.5 dimes.

 

Key was named to the SEC’s All-Freshman team, and was the conference’s Freshman of the Week In January after notching a combined 45 points and 18 rebounds in games against Georgia and Mississippi State.

 

ESPN’s No. 33 player in the 2016 high school class, Key averaged 20.7 points, 10.5 rebounds and 4.9 assists as a junior at Christ Presbyterian Academy (Nashville, TN), leading the team to a 32-5 record and the state championship.

 

The 2014 and 2015 Tennessean player of the year transferred to Oak Hill Academy (Mouth of Wilson, VA) for his senior season, leading the team to the national championship and a 45-1 record.
