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.

You are a stupid fuck.  All I can say.  Great kid gets injured and the coach comes out to calm him down and all you can do is act like your 12.

Two points, it was fairly obvious to me that he had a rather serious injury, just the pain he was in should have been cause for concern. That being said, why wasn't there a gurney or some type of support so two teammates wouldn't have to carry him off the floor with his leg dragging on the court? Seems like the arena was ill prepared for this situation, and that isn't acceptable in my opinion.

Whats creepier is that you were staring at Huggins' crotch as he stood up. There might be some websites outside of cbssports that better suit you.

I haven't been that uncomfortable since I watched the Director's Cut of Brokeback Mountain.

I'm sorry your stupid, my son had the same injury and the people were doing the same thing, because he was scared and was about to go into shock. Show some compassion you idiot!

hey idiot he was trying to get butler's mind right! imagine if everything you ever dreamed of was right there and you lost it! Bob had to try to pull his head together immediately and get him focused on what he needed to do! Spergon you are a clown and there is no reason to even explain that to a loser like you.  I know you never played a sport and if you did you sucked loser, bitch, pussy, clown! post that CBS!
