Adam Sparks at the Tennessean reports less than an hour before the Tennessee game what we’ve suspected for a few days: Matthew Fisher-Davis’s Vanderbilt career is over. (Also reported on vucommodores.com.)
Fisher-Davis injured his shoulder during the Kentucky game and missed both games last week, a loss at Mississippi State and a win over LSU at Memorial Gym. According to Sparks, Fisher-Davis will undergo surgery on Friday morning and the expected recovery time is six months.
Prior to the injury, the senior from Charlotte was averaging 11.9 ppg and shooting 33.3 percent from three in 16 games (9 starts.) He ends his Vanderbilt career with 1219 points, good for 30th on Vanderbilt’s all-time career scoring list (just behind Riley LaChance), and his 269 career three-point makes rank 6th all-time at Vanderbilt, behind Shan Foster, John Jenkins, Ronnie McMahan, Scott Draud, and Frank Seckar.
