LIU Brooklyn's Julian Boyd has torn his right ACL for the third time since December 2012, Blackbirds coach Jack Perri told CBSSports.com on Friday.
The 6-7 forward will miss the rest of the season and his career with the NEC school is officially over.
He first sustained the injury eight games into the 2012-13 season, then re-tore the same ACL again this past July.
Boyd, who missed the 2009-10 season with a heart ailment, was granted a sixth year of eligibility by the NCAA and hoped to return at some point this season.
The 6-7 forward was the anchor of LIU's nucleus when healthy over the past few years and led the Blackbirds to back-to-back NCAA Tournaments in 2011 and 2012.
Boyd was named NEC Player of the Year in 2012 and averaged 18.5 points and 6.1 rebounds during that season.
