New Orleans - Tulane University head men's basketball coach Dave Dickerson announced today that freshman Kendall Timmons will miss the remainder of the 2008-09 season with a back injury.
Timmons a 6-5, 192-pound swingman from Fort Worth, Texas, started four of the nine games he played this season, and registered a career-high 18 points on the road at George Mason on Dec. 22. His season averages included 5.4 points and 2.8 rebounds per game, and he connected on 49 percent of his field goal attempts and shot 75 percent from the free-throw line.
"We are very disappointed to lose Kendall to a season-ending injury," Dickerson said. "He showed a lot of promise in the nine games he played this season and we look forward to having him back 100 percent healthy next season."
Timmons reached double figures in two games, including the George Mason contest and he registered 13 points against Albany State. He finished with a career-high five rebounds on three occasions and picked up his first collegiate start against Western Kentucky on Dec. 6.
