University of Toledo forward Angel Aparicio suffered a torn ACL and could miss the upcoming basketball season, coach Tod Kowalczyk confirmed today.

Aparicio, of Spain, suffered the injury last week during individual workouts. He will undergo surgery next month after the team returns home from a trip to Greece.

The injury marks another setback for Aparicio, who has yet to participate in a game after moving to Toledo about a year ago. He sat out the second semester last season to satisfy transfer rules and is set to miss the first 40 percent of the upcoming season because of issues over his professional status in Spain.
