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.

longisland333, if you're going to use a word like "troglodyte," know what it means.  Just because it sounds like it means "ugly and stupid; trollish" doesn't mean that is the definition.  Using big words can sometimes even camouflage a weak argument, but when you misuse them, you can't camouflage your lack of intelligence.

"I don't have any kids yet but if I had a son I would be thrilled to have him play for a coach that cares that much about his players."  Your child will never be athletic enough to play Division I basketball.

I'm a Duke fan and up until that point I was cheering every basket made, cursing every Duke foul, and was really into the game on the edge of my seat even though we had a big lead. When I saw Butler go down writhing in pain and they showed the replay of what happened to his knee that just sucked the air out of the rest of the game for me. I really hope Butler makes a full recovery and is able to play in the NBA if that is his dream. According to Huggins even with Butler's NBA career in jeopardy and him being in considerable pain he wasn't thinking about that and was instead apologizing for what he considered to be letting his team down. The kid is clearly a class act. I hope the parents of other kids that play basketball and will soon be making the decision on where to go to school saw the love and compassion that Huggins displayed for Butler the other night. I don't have any kids yet but if I had a son I would be thrilled to have him play for a coach that cares that much about his players.

SpergonWynn. I actually feel sorry for you because you are such a loser. You could really enjoy life if you had a brain but it is obvious that you dont. Too bad for the rest of us that we have to deal with people like you. You make the world a worse place.

This is simply stupid schtick by a clown looking for attention, and unfortunately he's getting plenty.
