MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Minnesota sophomore forward Eric Curry will miss the upcoming season, after injuring his left knee during a pickup game.
The university announced that Curry tore his ACL, MCL and meniscus Thursday.
Gophers coach Richard Pitino said the team was "disheartened by the news" after a "tremendous summer" on the court by Curry. The native of Memphis, Tennessee, played in all 34 games in a reserve role as a freshman. He was third on the team in rebounds and blocks, averaging 5.5 points and 19.9 minutes per game.
