Hans Brase out for year with injury, ending his Princeton career

Hans Brase has suffered another knee injury that has ended his Princeton career, per the Trentonian’s reporting, a year after Brase sustained a torn ACL that ended his 2015-16 season as well.

Brase suffered his most recent season-ending injury at VCU on Nov. 29. The source of his injury was his right knee, per the Trentonian, which also noted he tore his right ACL last season.

Brase started all five contests he played in this season, averaging 6.4 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game.

The Clover, S.C. native finished the season ranked ninth in the Ivy League in scoring, fourth in rebounding and eighth in three-pointers made per game in 2014-15, the final full season of his Princeton career.

Brase will stay with the team for the remainder of the season and graduate in the spring with a degree in sociology, according to the Trentonian.

Since the Ivy League does not permit medical redshirts, Brase withdrew from school in 2015 to retain a year of eligibility. Brase missed all of the 2015-16 season after he tore his right ACL.

Princeton is now left with virtually the same roster it had during last season’s 22-7 campaign.

  1. That’s a shame for Brase, a truly terrific Tiger.

    While that is a blow to this year’s squad, it may not be as significant since he did not play last year and they brought back almost the entire 2015-2016 team. The bigger problem, as TT described in his Sunday post, may be the play at the point. If Bell cannot get back to his previous level, and Cannady cannot pick up his numbers from last year, then the Tigers may have troubles. Not enough to prevent them from being in the top 4, but beating the ever improving Bulldogs and Crimson.
