WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) _ Purdue guard Chris Kramer plans to
undergo a second surgery to repair compartment syndrome in both his
legs on Friday.

The 6-foot-3 Kramer averaged 7.2 points a game as a freshman
last season, trailing only now-departed seniors Carl Landry and
David Teague. He led the Boilermakers with 75 assists and 64 steals
as he started 24 games and was named to the Big Ten all-defensive
team.

He had surgery in March, but that didn't solve the problem.

"After the first surgery, I was still having some discomfort in
my legs," Kramer said Wednesday. "We decided to get it fixed
before the season starts. It's really not going to be that big of a
deal, since I know what to expect now. I'm just anxious to get it
done."

Kramer has been playing pickup games for the last month and is
scheduled to be back on the court in mid-September.
