Boston College Eagles power forward Deontae Hawkins will miss the remainder of the 2017-18 season with a knee injury, a source tells FanRag Sports.

Hawkins, 6-8, was limited to just 11 minutes against Nebraska in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge on Nov. 29. He accounted for four points and one rebound prior to exiting the Eagles’ 71-62 defeat with the injury.

The forward ends his season averaging 12.4 points and 9.1 rebounds over eight games. He posted three straight double-doubles heading into the tilt with Nebraska and was coming off his best game of the season, a 19-point, 12-rebound effort in an 86-66 loss to the Providence Friars.

Hawkins’ season with the Eagles ends before it could take off. After committing, backing out and then re-committing, he joined the ACC program as a grad transfer from Illinois State in mid-August, giving Boston College head coach Jim Christian another playmaker to use in the frontcourt.
