Northwestern's Swopshire to miss rest of season after having right knee scoped

Northwestern says forward Jared Swopshire will miss the remainder of the season after having arthroscopic surgery on his right knee on Tuesday.

A graduate student who transferred from Louisville, Swopshire started all 24 games and averaged 9.7 points and 6.7 rebounds. He was injured Saturday at Iowa, another big blow for a team that had already lost one of its best players in Drew Crawford to a season-ending shoulder injury in December.

Northwestern (13-11, 4-7 Big Ten) plays Thursday night at No. 13 Ohio State.
