Georgia Tech's Jose Alvarado to miss remainder of season

AP Sports Writer

ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia Tech point guard Jose Alvarado will miss the remainder of the season after fracturing his left elbow.

Coach Josh Pastner said Monday X-rays showed the fracture. The injury, suffered when Alvarado fell on his arm in Sunday's 80-69 loss to No. 9 Duke, initially was described as a dislocated elbow.

The freshman had been a durable mainstay in Georgia Tech's lineup. He had played every minute in eight games, including the Yellow Jackets' previous four contests.

Alvarado and center Ben Lammers were Georgia Tech's only players to start every game this season. Pastner says he hasn't selected a replacement at point guard for Wednesday night's game at Wake Forest.

Alvarado is second on the team with his average of 12.1 points per game.
