(WEST LAFAYETTE, IN) - The third-ranked Purdue Boilermakers will be without junior forward Robbie Hummel for the remainder of the season.
Hummel tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during the Boiler's 59-58 win at Minnesota on Wednesday night.
Hummel's knee buckled as he drove to the lane at the 7:11 mark of the first half against the Golden Gophers.
An MRI on Thursday revealed the ACL tear.
The Indiana all-star out of Valparaiso was averaging 16 points, seven rebound and two assists per game and was on the watch lists for some national player of the year awards.
