McCaffery out after tonsillectomy

IOWA CITY — University of Iowa men’s basketball freshman Connor McCaffery underwent a tonsillectomy Wednesday morning as a result of recurrent bouts of throat infections and his recent case mononucleosis.

McCaffery, who had already missed 10 games of his freshman campaign due to a sprained ankle and mono, will be out an indeterminate period of time.

The Iowa City native and son of Hawkeye head coach Fran McCaffery has played limited minutes in four non-conference games.
