Bozeman Has Successful Arthroscopic Surgery

Dec. 3, 2001

UCLA true freshman Cedric Bozeman, who started the Bruins' first four games at the point guard position, had successful arthroscopic right knee surgery on Monday at the UCLA Medical Center. The one-half hour procedure, performed by Bruin team physician Dr. Gerald Finerman, repaired a tear in Bozeman's lateral meniscus (cartilage).

According to Finerman, the rehabilitation and recuperation period will take approximately four-to-six weeks.

After the Bruins returned from the Maui Invitational (Nov. 19-21), Bozeman's right knee began swelling and the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was ordered Thursday (Nov. 29) as a precautionary measure (and it revealed the tear).

Bozeman, a 6-6, 193-pounder who was a McDonald's All-American as a senior prepster at Mater Dei HS in 2001, after four starts for the Bruins this season was averaging 25.0 minutes, 5.3 points, 2.3 rebounds and a team-high 3.3 assists. He's shooting 47.4 (9-19) from the field, 33.3 (1-3) from three-point range and 66.7 (2-3) from the foul line.
