Texas freshman guard Dogus Balbay will undergo knee surgery on Tuesday, UT athletic trainer for men's basketball Fred Burnett confirmed Monday.

According to Texas athletic trainer Fred Burnett, Dogus Balbay suffered a right knee injury back on October 4th during a pick-up game. But now the decision has been made to undergo knee surgery, which will sideline the freshman point guard indefinitely. Balbay will have the surgery on Tuesday.

Balbay, a native of Turkey, averaged 13.5 points and a team-best 7.5 assists per game in one season at Brewster Academy (Wolfeboro, N.H.) while leading the school to a 29-6 record and a runner-up finish at the NEPSAC Class A Championship. He paced the Under-19 Turkish National Team to a seventh-place finish at the 16-team Under-19 World Championships this summer in Novi Sad, Serbia (July 12-22), leading his team in scoring (12.4 ppg), rebounding (5.8 rpg), assists (3.3 apg), steals (1.9 spg) and minutes played (26.7 mpg).
