Freshman Collin Hartman tears ACL during workout

  • 03/15/2014 6:10 pm in

Freshman forward Collin Hartman tore his ACL in his right knee during a workout on Saturday, Indiana coach Tom Crean has announced via his Twitter account.

“Collin Hartman planted his leg wrong in a drill and hurt his knee,” he said. “The news is not good in that he has a torn ACL and we are waiting to make sure that’s all. Collin has been practicing well and getting better. This is a setback for him.”

Crean said that Hartman will be evaluated further on Sunday and that his summer will “take a different turn” in working with the medical staff.

Hartman, an Indianapolis native, played in 16 of Indiana’s 32 total games this season and averaged 4.5 minutes of action per game in his first season in Bloomington.

    If he did damage to his ACL, he most likely damaged his tibial collateral ligament and medial meniscus.

    Sorry to hear that. Now instead of spending the offseason developing his game he will have to spend it rehabbing.

    Dang! Get well soon CH!

    As if this season wasn’t bad enough another injury. Good luck CH.

    Bummer. Sometimes these injuries can take a while to come back from. I wonder if he may get a redshirt for 2014/2015.

  • INUnivHoosier

    Tough break for him. Hope he heals up quick.

    Is this the crappiest season post last year Sampson of all time. Stuff is all wrong. Like all wrong.

    Uncle! I cry Uncle. Good God.

    Who’s Collin Hartman?

  • MPmike B

    I feel for the kid. A true hoosier, but he had a very disappointing freshman season. At the rate he is going, he will be far behind Austin Etherington as far as potential and development. I believe Austin could have been further along if he did not have that knee injury last year. As for as Colin Hartman, he needs to flat out play alot better to continue to earn his scholarship. I really hope he suceeds, but he needs to do alot better than he has shown.

    Sorry for Collin..he’s had his share of injuries including high school. That locks in one roster position right there/ Hope his rehab goes well

  • Shaggy_C

    Yow, very sorry to hear that. Here’s to a speedy recovery and no long-term damage. The term ACL tear can mean a variety of conditions ranging from light damage to a full separation requiring surgery, hoping for the former so he can be back in time for summer practice at least in a light capacity.

    You’re a jerk for saying that man… Clearly you’ve never had a serious sports injury

    “Good luck in your recovery and stay strong CH! We are going to need your shooting if Crean ever decides to use you!
