McLemore came down hard and immediately started shouting in pain as medical personnel quickly surrounded him.
Thank you Auburn Family for all the love and support! Doctors said I dislocated my ankle, fractured my tibia, and will need surgery for some torn ligaments. Not to worry, I’ll be back in 4-6 months. War Eagle everybody ?— Anfernee McLemore (@akmclemore) February 17, 2018
The 6-foot-7 McLemore remained on the ground for several minutes before he was carried out on a stretcher. His coach, Bruce Pearl, and South Carolina coach Frank Martin came out to check on him. McLemore sat up on the stretcher to wave to the crowd before heading to the locker room. McLemore has started 21 of 27 games for the 10th-ranked Tigers this season. He has averaged 7.7 points and 5.3 rebounds a game this year.
