Maymon To Miss Season

Vols UT Tennessee Volunteers

Knoxville, TN– Tennessee basketball coach Cuonzo Martin announced Sunday that forward Jeronne Maymon will redshirt the 2012-13 season.

Maymon, who has yet to practice with the Volunteers this season due to a left knee injury, plans to return to action next season as a fifth-year senior.

A native of Madison, Wis., Maymon enjoyed a breakout campaign for the Volunteers last year, earning second-team All-SEC honors. He averaged 12.7 points and a team-best 8.1 rebounds 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.

“It’s really tough to know that I can’t be on the court with my teammates this season,” Maymon said. “But I have confidence in them, just like I have confidence in these coaches and our medical staff. I know this is in my best interest, and I am going to work incredibly hard to come back as an even better player and teammate next season. I love Tennessee.

“I believe everything happens for a reason, and I see this injury as a blessing in disguise. God does not make mistakes.”
