Alabama's Steele undergoes successful surgery

University of Alabama senior point guard Ronald Steele underwent successful knee surgery at St.Vincent's Birmingham on Thursday.

Dr. Lyle Cain and Dr. James Andrews performed arthroscopic surgery on Steele's left knee to remove small cartilage fragments that developed during rehabilitation from surgery April 3.

Steele will begin rehabilitation immediately, and is expected to be available for the upcoming basketball season.

After being named first-team All-SEC after his sophomore season, Steele struggled through an injury-plagued year as a junior. He suffered a twisted ankle in a game in December, and his knees bothered him as well. He shot only 38.4 percent from the floor and saw his scoring average dip nearly 6 points per game to 8.6.

The Crimson Tide finished 20-12 and lost in the first round of the NIT.
