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.

I am a huge Duke fan and find it disgusting some of the comments being written here. I felt sick when Butler went down and I hope him a speedy recovery as well as a great future. Not all Duke fans are idiots. Thanks

Yes WVU doesn't have the most class in the world, I'm not an idiot, but wow. Duke supporters and yeah just waited for some Pitt idiot to chime in. Jamie Dixon is a good coach who cares about his kids, and theres really nothing bad I can say about him except well yeah he coaches for Pitt. Coach K yeah we all know how good he is at what he does, but this is why People from WVU hate Pitt supporters, and pretty much why most of the college basketball nation hates Duke. You guys are both idiots and I hope you can't reproduce. I could understand maybe a little if it was Mazulla or someone thats been a menice, getting in trouble all the time, but this young man has been nothing but a model for all young kids. He has busted his ass throughout his years at WVU to be the best he can be on and off the court! I hope you too feel better about yourselves after such stupid post! I can only thank him for being such a great Mountaineer,and pray for a very speedy recovery for Butler. Again thank you Butler for playing the game the way its supposed to be played.

I wonder if this hurts his chances at getting picked in the YMCA 5 on 5 leagues he will now be playing in.

you are a world class jerk. no other coach would have that amount of compassion and caring for his players. it really shows the class that Bob Huggins and the WVU program have.  you should be ashamed of posting something so disrespectful.

Such a shame that with just minutes left in his college career he'd tear his ACL.  Clearly a distressing moment for him and his teammates who never recovered from losing their leader.  Duke had the game in hand regardless, but Butler now has a hard road ahead of him to recover and play professionally.   As a Purdue fan who saw this happen to Robbie Hummel, I can sympathize with West Virginia fans who want to see their players do well ever after their college career has ended.

Jack Ass! thats what you troglodytes are! A young man is on the court in agonizing pain, his NBA dreams and all the money that go with a career in the NBA slipping away because he tried his best and people put their mind in the porn section. you are the cheese no penicillin will cure! And for any parent out there with a kid looking at WV, theresa a coach who will care about your child! Track suit Bob gets my support!
