Branden Dawson Injury: Michigan State Guard Has Successful Surgery After Tearing ACL

Michigan State freshman guard Branden Dawson tore his ACL in the final game of the NCAA regular season against the Ohio State Buckeyes. The Spartans ended up losing the game after a last second comeback by the Buckeyes, ruining their chance to take full possession of the Big Ten regular season title.

Good news is in for Dawson though, as he announced via Twitter on Wednesday that he had surgery and that it went well.

Surgery went well. Thanks for all the support from family, friends, & my family. My recovery is so far so good.

Now the test is on the Spartans to win big in March without Dawson on the court. They can start by making some noise in the Big Ten tournament; the Spartans will face either Iowa or Illinois in their first game as the top seed in the conference on Friday.
