    STORRS, Conn. - UConn freshman center Amida Brimah (Accra, Ghana) is scheduled to undergo shoulder surgery Friday morning at the UConn Health Center in Farmington for a left shoulder labral repair.

     The surgery, a left shoulder arthroscopy, will repair a torn labrum and is expected to alleviate a condition that bothered the 7-foot freshman at times throughout the 2013-14 season. While the condition was not severe enough to warrant surgery during the season, following a recent MRI, it was determined that it would be the best course of treatment to fully alleviate the problem. The recovery period is usually 4-5 months.

     Brimah played in all 40 games for the National Champion Huskies, starting 17, and averaging 16.2 minutes per game. He averaged 4.1 points, 3.0 rebounds, and shot a team-leading 64.0 percent overall. His 92 blocked shots (2.3) also led the Huskies and ranked second in the American Athletic Conference. Brimah was named to the league’s All-Rookie Team and was the conference Rookie of the Week on Jan. 13.
