View Full Version : Austin Daye has partially torn ACL

POKANE, Wash. -- Gonzaga forward Austin Daye didn't come out as well as he thought from a hard fall last week.

Daye went down in a tangle of bodies last Tuesday at the LeBron James Skills Academy in Akron, Ohio. At first he was thought to have injured a tendon in the hamstring of his right leg.

Instead, the Spokesman-Review of Spokane reports that an MRI has shown the 6-foot-10 sophomore from Irvine, Calif., has a partially torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee.

Daye now expects to undergo surgery in three or four days.

Last year, in his freshman season, he averaged 10.5 points and 4.7 rebounds.

This would be a huge loss if he were to miss the whole season. I think this is the best team Gonzaga has had in a while and with him, I'd expect them to go far in the NCAA tournament.
