Former Michigan Mr. Basketball Brad Redford out for season with knee injury

This news couldn’t come at a worse time for Brad Redford, one of this state’s most prolific prep scorers. Redford was poised to become one of the go-to players for Xavier this season before a knee injury in practice put the breaks on his junior season.

Xavier guard Brad Redford, one of the nation’s most dangerous 3-point shooters, will miss the 2010-11 season as the result of tearing a knee ligament during a Musketeers practice.

The Cincinnati Enquirer quoted Xavier team physician Robert Burger as saying Redford had torn the ACL in his left knee.

“Because of the nature of the injury, he will undergo reconstructive surgery sometime in the near future,” Burger told the Enquirer. “We anticipate Brad will miss the 2010-11 season but will make a full recovery for the future.”

Redford had been a one-man zone buster for the Musketeers in his first two seasons.
