(TSX / STATS) -- Boston College forward Deontae Hawkins will miss the remainder of the season with a knee injury, the team announced Wednesday.

Hawkins was injured in the first half of a 71-62 loss to Nebraska on Nov. 29. The 6-foot-8, 220-pound graduate transfer was averaging 12.4 points and a team-best 9.1 rebounds per game this season.

"Teddy means so much to everyone in our program and he made a big impact in his time here," coach Jim Christian said in a statement, per the Boston Globe.

"He brought maximum effort to every practice and game and was a positive influence on both our veterans and our younger players. His leadership on and off the court will be missed."

Hawkins spent his first three years at Illinois State.
