McClure to redshirt with knee injury

Men's basketball head coach Mike Krzyzewski confirmed Wednesday on his XM Radio show, "Basketball and Beyond with Coach K," that sophomore David McClure will redshirt the 2005-06 season.

The forward had surgery on his left knee at the Duke University Medical Center May 12 to repair an Osteochondral lesion on his patella. McClure averaged 1.7 points and 1.4 rebounds per game in his freshman campaign.

McClure was originally injured in Duke's 75-66 loss against Maryland Jan. 26 and underwent surgery midseason to remove a loose body in the knee. The then-freshman sat out seven games and returned to the court with minimal pain. Doctors determined, however, that without off-season surgery he would be at a high risk for developing arthritis.
