Auburn forward Anfernee McLemore will need surgery for torn ligaments after he was was stretchered off the court late in the first half of Saturday's game against South Carolina. McLemore tweeted he dislocated his ankle and fractured his tibia and will be out four to six months. With less than a minute and a half left in the half, McLemore was playing help defense when South Carolina's Wesley Myers drove toward the basket. Myers pulled up halfway into the paint for a floater and drew a foul on Auburn's Desean Murray. McLemore was standing right behind Murray, who went to the ground after the contact with Myers on his shot attempt. McLemore had started to turn his back and jump for the rebound when Murray hit the ground, and Murray collided with McLemore's left leg, causing McLemore's foot to turn to its side.
