Maryland men’s lacrosse junior attackman Eric Malever will miss the 2023 season with leg injuries, Inside Lacrosse reported Sunday and a source confirmed to Testudo Times. According to the report, Malever suffered a torn ACL, torn MCL and broken tibia during a September practice.
The Terps had a scrimmage against Cornell on Sunday, and Malever obviously did not participate.
This upcoming spring would have been Malever’s third year as a Terp. He was an integral part of last spring’s national championship team. The Atlanta native finished the season with 26 goals and 22 assists; his 48 points ranked fifth on the team.
Malever was expected to be one of the Terps’ biggest offensive threats in 2023 and was certainly in line to receive conference and national honors. The Terps have plenty of offensive talent, but Malever is undeniably a massive loss for head coach John Tillman’s squad.
