Auburn Tigers men’s basketball player Anfernee McLemore suffered a serious injury on Saturday against the South Carolina Gamecocks. He was attempting to get a rebound when the injury happened.

When he came down, he landed awkwardly.

The injury happened at 1:23 left in the first half. South Carolina was leading 45-23 at the time McLemore went down.

After the injury happened, Tigers medical staff rushed to the court to check on McLemore. Head Coach Bruce Pearl surrounded McLemore, while his teammates gathered on the ben h in prayer.

McLemore suffered a dislocated ankle, according to the team’s spokesman. He has left the arena to go to a local hospital in Columbia, South Carolina to get medical attention.

He has started 20 of the team’s 26 games. He was named a starter on the team early in the season following several strong performances that forced Pearl to put McLemore in the starting lineup.

McLemore was averaging 7.7 points and 5.3 rebounds per game. His season is now likely over.
