Mississippi guard Gaskins out for season after injuring knee

OXFORD, Miss. -- Mississippi guard Trevor Gaskins will miss
the upcoming season after tearing a ligament in his knee.

The sophomore will have season-ending surgery after injuring the
anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during practice
Thursday.

Coach Andy Kennedy called the injury "disheartening for
Trevor."

The Alpharetta, Ga., native started eight games last season and
played in all 35, averaging 5.9 points per contest.

The Rebels open the season against Arkansas State on Nov. 14 in
Oxford.
