STORRS, Conn. (AP) — UConn says forward Mamadou Diarra has undergone successful surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee.

The school says the 6-foot-8 sophomore was hurt during basketball workouts last week.

UConn athletic trainer James Doran says the surgery went well, but Diarra's recovery is expected to take between four and six months.

Diarra played in 31 games for the Huskies last season, averaging 2.7 points and 2.5 rebounds.
