December 16th, 2008

ATLANTA – Georgia Tech point guard Maurice “Moe” Miller will undergo surgery Wednesday to reset a nasal fracture, sustained as a result of an elbow to the face in Sunday’s 66-60 loss to UIC, and will be sidelined approximately three weeks, head coach Paul Hewitt said Tuesday.

 

Miller suffered the fracture and a mild concussion in the collision Sunday, and had already been ruled out of Wednesday’s game against Georgia State. Hewitt hopes Miller can return by the middle of January.

 

Miller, who also missed the Nov. 25 game against Arkansas-Pine Bluff as a result of a mild concussion suffered in a Nov. 22 game at Mercer, has averaged 7.8 points a game and ranks second in the ACC with 5.7 assists per game.
