The Virginia Tech men’s basketball team has announced that sophomore guard Ahmed Hill is out indefinitely, after undergoing surgery on his left leg Tuesday, August 11.

Hill suffered a partial tear to his patella tendon during individual workouts earlier this month. Averaging 8.7 points and 3.7 rebounds per game, Hill was a consistent presence on the floor for the Hokies as a freshman. The Augusta, Georgia native played in all 33 games for the Hokies last season, starting in a team-high 30.

The surgery was performed at LewisGale Montgomery Hospital by Dr. Tony McPherron, and no current timetable for his return has been released yet.
