Issac Vann undergoing ankle surgery

Issac Vann is undergoing surgery today to correct an ankle injury which caused issues throughout the sophomore’s season. He first injured his ankle (high ankle sprain) against Marquette in the Maui Invitational tournament on November 20th. He checked in 5 games later against Texas, but played just 3 minutes before exiting the game. Vann sat a total of 8 games this season due to injury, missing a majority of the team’s out-of-conference schedule.
