Mississippi State freshman guard Andre Applewhite suffers season-ending injury

Rick Ray's rebuilding job at Mississippi State just got slightly more difficult.

(And it was already going to be really, really difficult.)

The first-year coach announced Tuesday that freshman Andre Applewhite has a torn ACL and torn meniscus in his left knee and will miss the entire 2012-13 season. The 6-foot-5 guard suffered the injuries on Friday in practice. He signed with Mississippi State last April after a prep career during which he was teammates at Central High in Memphis with Tennessee sophomore Jarnell Stokes.

This development leaves the Bulldogs with just eight healthy scholarship players to start a season in which they were already picked to finish last in the SEC. Mississippi State opens the season on Friday in Starkville against Troy.
