CHAPEL HILL -- University of North Carolina men's basketball guard Dexter Strickland underwent meniscus repair and reconstructive surgery on his right anterior cruciate ligament on Thursday morning. Team orthopaedist Dr. Alex Creighton performed the surgery at UNC Hospitals. Strickland's recovery time has yet to be determined.

The junior from Rahwah, N.J., suffered the injury as he drove to the basket in a game at Virginia Tech on Jan. 19.

He started the first 19 games this season for the Tar Heels and shared the team lead in steals with 25 and was second in assists with 39 at the time of his injury. He was shooting a team-high 57 percent from the floor and was averaging 7.5 points per game.
