IOWA CITY, Iowa. (KCRG) - Iowa men's basketball junior forward Cordell Pemsl will miss the rest of the season after final examinations recommend surgery.

The University announced Tuesday that Pemsl will undergo surgery next month.

“Cordell’s procedure is to remove hardware near his knee from a previous surgery when he was in high school,” said head coach Fran McCaffery. “It was hoped this procedure could wait until the end of the season, but is now determined the hardware removal is necessary before he will be able to return to the court."

Pemsl played in one game this season and has played 67 games in his career. He averages 7.2 points per game and 4.7 rebounds per game.
