Maryland will be without its junior center for the remainder of the season.
Michal Cekovsky, who fractured his left ankle in the second half of Sunday’s game at Wisconsin, is out for the season.
Cekovsky averaged 7.6 points and 2.8 rebounds in 13.2 minutes per game for the Terrapins. The 7-foot-1 center from Slovakia was also off to a strong start against the Badgers, scoring 10 points on 4-for-5 shooting with 2 boards and 2 blocks.

The No. 24 Terrapins are 22-5 this season (10-4 Big Ten). They next play 8:30 p.m. ET Wednesday at home vs. Minnesota. Maryland is in third place in the Big Ten, one game behind both Purdue and Wisconsin.
“I feel badly for Ceko as he has endured a number of injuries throughout the season,” Terrapins coach Mark Turgeon said in an official release. “It felt like he was really starting to turn the corner and his best basketball was ahead of him. We anticipate a full recovery for next season and we will be there to support him through the rehabilitation process.”
