Jack Nunge, a redshirt sophomore for the Iowa Hawkeyes that has started every game this season, tore the ACL in his right knee on Sunday night and is done for the season.

“All of us feel for Jack,” said head coach Fran McCaffery. “This is an unfortunate setback for a young man who spent countless hours in the gym and weight room last year preparing for this season. Jack has the full support of his teammates and coaches during his recovery.”

Nunge, a 6-foot-11, 245 pound forward, was averaging 6.0 points, 4.6 boards and 1.8 assists on the season. He redshirted the 2018-19 season to prepare for this year.
