Cal calls Malone injury ‘heartbreaking’

Freshman walk-on Sam Malone tore an anterior cruciate ligament in Kentucky’s victory over Chattanooga on Saturday.
UK issued a statement from Coach John Calipari:
“Losing Sam Malone to an ACL injury is heartbreaking. He has been a great teammate and an even better person. You never want to hear someone is injured, but for Sam to go through his fourth knee injury is especially tough because he’s worked so hard to get where he is. He has become a valuable member of our team and quickly became a fan favorite. We look forward to Sam making a full recovery.”
During his high school career, Malone tore a ACL. He also underwent microfracture knee surgery and another surgery to repair torn meniscus.
