Smith started in all five games thus far in the season, averaged 7.6 points per game and led the team with 16 offensive rebounds.

Coach Matt McMahon said in the release the news is “heartbreaking” and said Smith is a “tough competitor with a tremendous work ethic.” He said he looks forward to Smith making a full recovery.

The Racers play Middle Tennessee on Saturday in Murfreesboro.
