Iowa forward to miss remainder of season with knee injury
Iowa is losing a reserve forward for the remainder of the season.
On Friday, Iowa announced that redshirt sophomore Jack Nunge suffered a season-ending injury in the 1st half of the game against Michigan on Thursday night. He sustained a torn meniscus and will not play the remainder of the year.
This is the second time Nunge has sustained a season-ending injury in his career. Last season, he suffered an ACL tear in a November game against Cal Poly in 2019. The injury this year occurred in the same knee.
Nunge is expected to undergo surgery soon and will likely be out for the next four to six months.
This season, Nunge appeared in 22 games and averaged 7.1 points and 5.3 rebounds per game, the highest for any bench player for the Hawkeyes. Iowa has three regular season games remaining, playing No. 4 Ohio State, Nebraska and No. 23 Wisconsin before the B1G Tournament begins.
Iowa is 17-7 on the season with an 11-6 record in the B1G.
