Ohio State sophomore forward Jae'Sean Tate is out for the rest of the season due to a shoulder injury, the school announced Tuesday. He will have surgery Friday.
Tate reportedly underwent an MRI on his left shoulder after sustaining an injury during the Buckeyes’ 65-62 overtime win against Nebraska on Saturday. It apparently revealed an injury severe enough to sideline him for the rest of the year.
Ohio State expects Tate to make a full recovery and be ready in time for the start of practice next season.
Tate is Ohio State’s leading scorer in Big Ten play averaging 11.9 points per game in league action. He is also the team’s second-leading rebounder in Big Ten play at 5.9 per game.
The Buckeyes host sixth-ranked Michigan State at 9 p.m.
