Report: Wyoming's leading scorer Larry Nance Jr. tears ACL

By Jeff Borzello | College Basketball Writer

Wyoming is one of the hottest teams in the Mountain West, winning eight of its last 11 games -- including handing San Diego State its second loss of the season last week.

But the Cowboys suffered a devastating personnel loss on Tuesday night, as Larry Nance Jr. tore his ACL and is expected to miss the rest of the season.

ESPN.com first reported the news.

Nance Jr., a 6-foot-8 junior forward, had 17 points in 25 minutes against Fresno State before the injury. According to Andy Katz, Nance was unable to put weight on his leg when he was helped off. Nance leads Wyoming in scoring (15.4 ppg), rebounding (8.6 rpg), blocks (2.1 bpg), and steals (1.4 spg).

He's the son of former NBA all-star Larry Nance.

Wyoming is 17-9 overall, 8-5 in the Mountain West -- just a half-game out of third-place in the conference.
