Georgia forward out for rest of season



ATHENS, Ga. -- Georgia forward Corey Gibbs will miss the rest of the season because of a recurring knee problem.

Gibbs, a freshman, was suspended for the first nine games for making more than $500 from selling textbooks and school supplies, an NCAA rules violation. He returned and played sparingly in two games.

Gibbs first injured his knee as a senior in high school. He most likely will have a third operation on his right knee, coach Dennis Felton said Monday.

"This is a significant blow to our team," Felton said. "But I'm more concerned about Corey going through such a frustrating period in his athletic career."
