NORFOLK, Va. ( - Old Dominion University men’s basketball head coach Jeff Jones announced that 6-foot 5-inch junior guard Jason Wade underwent a successful surgery to repair his torn Achilles tendon, which Wade suffered during practice on Nov. 2.

Wade had been cleared a month prior to sustaining this injury after tearing his ACL against FIU last season on Jan. 23, 2020.

“I am heartbroken for Jason, knowing how hard he worked to get back to full strength after tearing his ACL,” said Jones. “Jason will be missed, but we will regroup and continue preparing to have a successful season.”

Prior to last season’s injury, Wade led the Monarchs in steals (2.6 spg) and field goal percentage (.566) and was second on the squad for points (11.4 ppg), assists (2.0 apg) and rebounds (5.7 rpg).
