AUBURN, Ala. - Auburn sophomore Horace Spencer's surgery on his left meniscus was successful. The surgery was performed by Dr. Jesse Pace at Jack Hughston Memorial Hospital in Phenix City on June 14.

"It was a tough break for Horace this summer," said Auburn head coach Bruce Pearl. "He got off to a great start. Having just lost four frontline players in Jordon (Granger), Tray (Reed), Tyler (Harris) and Cim (Bowers), this is a big year for Horace.

"It's a tough break for him to miss the summer, but he is already ahead of schedule in his rehab, and he has a healthy knee. He has to keep working hard in the weight room and working hard academically. He will be good to go probably in September."

The Philadelphia, Pa., native averaged 5.1 points, 4.9 rebounds and ranked third in the SEC with 2.1 blocks in 18.1 minutes last season. Playing in all 31 games, he started 18 and led all SEC freshman in blocks. His 65 blocks were the fifth-most in a single-season in Auburn history.

In the final six games of the season, Spencer averaged 8.3 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.7 blocks. He had a career-high seven blocks to go along with six points and five rebounds in Auburn's win at Arkansas and had a career-high 13 points, five rebounds, three blocks and two assists and a steal at Mississippi State.
