Auburn bench surrounds F Anfernee McLemore as sophomore carted off court

Auburn guard Bryce Brown celebrates a score against Kentucky Wednesday Feb. 14 2018 during the second half of an NCAA basketball game at Auburn Arena in Auburn Ala

Auburn forward Anfernee McLemore suffered a gruesome ankle injury late in the first half of the Tigers' game at SC on Saturday afternoon. Coming into the game McLemore had blocked 71 shots, which was one of the highest totals in the country. Tiger forward Desean Murray attempted to draw a charging foul on Gamecocks guard Wesley Myers.

McLemore remained on the ground for several minutes while receiving attention from team doctors. Auburn vs SC live stream is on SECN stream.

He landed awkwardly on his left ankle and appeared to dislocate it, a similar injury to what happened to the Celtics' Gordon Hayward in the opening game of the National Basketball Association season.

McLemore ends his season having averaged 7.7 points, 5.3 rebounds, and a whopping 2.7 blocks per game.

SEC Network posted a screengrab of McElmore waving to the road crowd as he was being taken off the floor.

McElmore only had one point at the time of his injury, but he did have five rebounds and two blocks during his time on the court.

Auburn trailed by as many as 26 points in the first half, but was able to storm back in the second half, even without McLemore. His coach, Bruce Pearl, and SC coach Frank Martin came out to check on him.
