Sunday December 14th, 2014

Memphis guard Markel Crawford sprained his left knee on Saturday against Oklahoma State and is expected to miss four games, Tigers coach Josh Pastner said after the game.  

Crawford left the game in the first half due to the knee injury. The redshirt freshman missed the entire 2013-14 season due to a torn ACL in his right knee, but the sprain occurred in his opposite knee. 

Entering Saturday, Crawford was averaging 5.5 points in 21.8 minutes per game this season. After losing to the Cowboys 73-55, Memphis dropped to 3-4 on the season. 

After their game against Oklahoma State, the Tigers will host North Carolina Central on Monday.
