INDIANAPOLIS -- Da'Sean Butler's knee injury is worse than West Virginia initially believed.

A source close to the program confirmed to CBSSports.com that an MRI performed Sunday showed Butler has a torn ACL, sprained MCL and two bone bruises in his left knee. This means he'll require surgery and be unable to workout for franchises before June's NBA Draft. The CBSSports.com First Team All-American is projected by most as a second round pick, but this development could leave Butler undrafted.

Butler collapsed in the second half of Saturday night's loss to Duke. He yelled in pain while lying on the court, which led to Bob Huggins holding him and caressing his face in one of the more moving moments of this NCAA tournament. WVU officials said they believed it was only a sprained MCL after the game. But they learned it is much worse Sunday.

Butler averaged 17.2 points and 6.2 rebounds this season. He was the MVP of the Big East tournament.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Da'Sean Butler and SpergonWynn.  May Da'Sean have a speedy recovery and find success in all he does.  May Spergon learn to become a decent human being.

My question about the play in which Butler was injured:  how was that an offensive foul?  Zoubek was still sliding his feet.  There were similar calls earlier in the game, and those all went against the defender who was still sliding.  Maybe not so coincidently, those calls all went against WVU too.  The officiating was definitely biased against WVU.  Not that it made any difference in the outcome, Duke was the better team Saturday.  What it tells me is Duke has had this tournament in the bag all along.  Despite being clearly the weakest of the 1-seeds, Duke was given the easiest path to the Final 4, and clearly have the officials in their back pocket.

SpergonWynn:

Good Lord, this is like conversing with a tree!  I'm sorry, you deserve more credit than that... how about an orangutan with a typewriter?  You really don't have any idea what you're doing, do you?  Throwing out "Dueling Banjos" and incest as your insult to a West Virginian - that's been going on for decades!  I heard that when I was pre-school.  THAT'S your attempt at a smart original comeback?!

And then to tout that you live in a wealthy suburb outside of D.C. as if that's some sort of reflection of your personal character?  I could give you a little bit of credit if you had talked about how much money you personally make because you invented something or other, but instead you just say you live in a place where there are rich people.  Well, congrats for you!  I'm sure your manservant trembles in jealous rage as he's changing your diaper because you can't figure out where to sh-t.  This is great stuff to teach elementary school children who are just learning how to insult others on the playground.

You've been bested.  It's over.  You're like the Black Knight in "Monty Python and the Holy Grail", flailing about with no arms and legs while crying, "It's only a flesh wound!"  Dude, crawl under the house and lick your wounds in isolation.  This is getting painful for me; I can't take any pleasure in ripping an imbecile to shreds.

Does anyone know of some remedial insult course that this poor a-shole can take?

living in the wealthiest county in America in a thriving suburb outside of our nation's capital, where I currently reside.Ah yes, the thriving suburb of Reston.  Where home values have dropped off the face of the earth, and English is the second language.  Let me guess, you're one of those people who is looking for a bailout b/c you bought a house you clearly couldn't afford and is now completely under water?  Living off the Government Cheese doesn't make you wealthy, it justs makes you a drain on our society which was once the "wealthiest country" in the world.

LOL!  Reston a thriving suburb....More like a thriving 3rd world country.  I was born in Arlington and I still have family in Northern VA.  "Thriving" is hardly the word of choice.  You give Caps fans a bad name, and I'm ashamed to call myself one if you're part of the fanbase.  Go die in a fire.

SpergonWynn:  You are an arrogant bigot.  Any jackass can toss out ignorant stereotypes.  You are no exception.

WVUAlum92:


Yes, you called me "Stoopid".  You are clearly very clever and I couldn't possibly hope to outsmart the likes of you.  You must be smart, because you live in West Virginia.  West Virginia is known as a place where most aspiring professionals choose to live.  I would love to live in a state that makes people think of the song "Dueling Banjos" and incest as opposed to living in the wealthiest county in America in a thriving suburb outside of our nation's capital, where I currently reside.  Yes, you clearly have one over on me and I am out of my league.

Huggins' face carressing of Butler was one of the creepiest moments in sports history.  He straddled him and gave him Eskimo kisses while rubbing his face.  No, it wasn't touching; it was creepy and awkward.  I also thought it was strange that when Huggins stood up he had an erection.

 



At least Huggins has made his peace with the man upstairs. As for chumps like you, WELCOME TO HELL MOTHERF#$KER!!!!

SpergonWynn, don't try to compete with me.  My comments are, quite simply, funnier and more insulting than yours, all while maintaining a level of intelligence to which you can only aspire.  That's not a compliment to myself; that goes for you against pretty much every other person on here.  I'm sure the vast majority of folks on here would agree with me.  I apologize in advance if you've never realized this, but you're pretty stupid.  I mean, you're a dumb person.  Do you understand what I'm saying?  U R STOOPID!  Is that easier for you?  Dude, you need to figure out when you're just out of your league.

Mother Teresa is dead.  She is probably in heaven now with Chris Henry.

SpergonWynn and JShow34, isn't it bad enough that your parents are among the biggest contributors to abortion rights causes every year because they know what a mistake they made in allowing you to mutate?  I've done some research on you two, you know.  It's not difficult to trace people on the Internet, even though you may think you have anonymity.  I was going to take the high road and not mention your child molestation and b-stiality convictions (oh yes, don't think that ALL of those court records were sealed).  I know it must hurt to realize how much better off society would be if you vanished off the face of the earth, but at least TRY to act like you serve some useful purpose in the universe.  I bet even Mother Teresa would meet you and say: "F-ck those a-sholes."
