Senior guard Jordan Ash will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury, head coach Chris Collins confirmed at media availability on Friday. The news was first reported by Tedd Greenstein of the Chicago Tribune.

* Why has Vic Law's shot been off? Could be b/c of knee tendinitis; it's why he missed the game @ Mich
* Backup PG Jordan Ash (knee) out for season https://t.co/Oxd703s2oi
“We tried early in the year to get him out there a little bit, see if his knee would respond,” Collins said on Friday. “[It] just wasn’t getting to the level where he felt he could contribute. And so after a lot of discussion with his family, with him, with us, we just decided the best way to go about it would be to shut him down, really focus on his rehab, his recovery and see if time can get that knee better and get him an opportunity to be successful in the future.”
Ash scored seven points and dished 10 assists in 10 games this year. The senior hasn’t seen game action since the Chicago State game. It’s unclear if Ash will be eligible for a medical redshirt. He missed the final seven games of 2018 with the aforementioned knee injury.
