Richmond senior Cedrick Lindsay is out for the rest of the season due to a knee injury, the team announced on Wednesday.
Lindsay, a 6-foot-1 guard from Washington D.C., suffered a torn meniscus in both knees.
“I would like to thank Cedrick for his outstanding contributions to Richmond Basketball,” head coach Chris Mooney said in a statement. “He has been an excellent player and teammate for us for the last four years. He has executed his role as team captain flawlessly. Ced is everything that Richmond Basketball strives to be: driven, competitive, smart, tough and selfless. I am forever grateful to be his coach.”
Lindsay averaged 18.3 points this season for the Spiders. He has been the prime catalyst for Richmond being close to the bubble at this point in the season, scoring at least 20 points on seven different occasions. Lindsay is coming off a 21-point effort against VCU, the second straight loss for the Spiders. He ranked third in the Atlantic 10 in scoring.
Richmond is 14-8 overall right, 4-3 in the A-10. The Spiders host Saint Bonaventure on Wednesday.
The Richmond Times-Dispatch and Richmond school newspaper first reported the news.
