Send to KindlePer a release from the school, Richmond senior guard Cedrick Lindsay will miss the remainder of the season with a torn meniscus in both knees. “I would like to thank Cedrick for his outstanding contributions to Richmond Basketball,” Mooney said. “He has been an excellent player and teammate for us for the last four years. He has executed his role as team captain flawlessly.  Ced is everything that Richmond Basketball strives to be: driven, competitive, smart, tough and selfless.  I am forever grateful to be his coach.” Lindsay was averaging a team-high 18.3 points per game this season, which ranked third in the Atlantic 10. The Washington, D.C. native finishes his career with 1,276 career points, which ranks 22nd on the Spiders’ all-time scoring list. The Preseason Third-Team All-Atlantic 10 pick finishes his career seventh on the school’s career assists list with 355 and 11th in steals at 129. He was a contributor on the the 2011 Atlantic 10 Championship and Sweet 16 team as a freshman. “Being a Spider means more than just being on the court,” Lindsay said. “It’s a family and I couldn’t ask for a better family than this.” This is the second player to leave the Spiders in two days.  Senior forward Derrick Williams left the team yesterday for personal reasons, however it’s the loss of Lindsay that will hurt Richmond the most.  It’s no secret that Lindsay was crucial to the success of the Spiders, as well as being the only senior leader on the team, following Williams departure. Junior guard Kendall Anthony is going to have to continue his strong play to help the Spiders finish out the last month of the season strong.   Related Posts:One thing to watch … RichmondRichmond Spiders unveil big developments in Robins CenterGive ‘em their due: The A10′s most underrated…Atlantic 10 Tempo Tuesday: Richmond risingWho are these guys?
