Buffs lose Sharpe for season

The Colorado men’s basketball season is already off to a rough start.

Shannon Sharpe, a talented freshman who Jeff Bzdelik planned on splitting time at point guard with sophomore Nate Tomlinson, will miss the entire 2009-10 season with a knee injury.

Sharpe will have microfracture surgery on his left knee, which was injured during a recent workout, on Thursday.

The Buffs are hoping to produce a winning season after suffering through three consecutive last-place finishes in the Big 12.
