Report: Vanderbilt's Josh Henderson likely tore ACL, MCL

By Jeff Borzello | College Basketball Writer

Vanderbilt held on to beat Marshall by two on Thursday night, but it wasn't all good news for the Commodores.

Junior center Josh Henderson might have torn the ACL and MCL in his left knee, head coach Kevin Stallings told The Tennessean.

Henderson suffered the injury in the first half of Thursday's game. He will undergo an MRI, and will likely miss the rest of the season.

“I think maybe it was one of our own guys that kind of crashed into Josh,” Stallings told the paper. “It hurts. Josh was playing well. He's been playing good basketball for us. I'm so sad for him and so sorry for him because unfortunately bad things happen to good people, and he's a wounded kid and has worked very hard to try to become a good player.”

Henderson, a 6-foot-11 Virginia native, averaged 6.6 points and 4.3 rebounds this season. He scored in double-figures on three occasions. With him out, expect talented freshman Damian Jones to see even more minutes. He played 28 minutes on Thursday, going for 15 points and six rebounds.

Vanderbilt (5-3) doesn't play against until December 17, against Austin Peay.
