STORRS, Conn. -- Connecticut point guard Jerome Dyson has undergone knee surgery and will be out for the rest of the season.

The school said Dyson had surgery Monday to repair a tear in the meniscus of his right knee. He was injured during last week's game against Syracuse, when he banged knees with an opposing player as he fought through a screen.

Dyson was averaging more than 13 points for the top-ranked Huskies. Dyson started all 24 games for UConn before his injury.
