LIU Brooklyn's Boyd tears ACL for third time
LIU Brooklyn forward Julian Boyd tore his right ACL for the third time since December 2012.
LIU Brooklyn's Julian Boyd has torn his right ACL for the third time since December 2012, Blackbirds coach Jack Perri told CBSSports.com on Friday.
The 6-7 forward will miss the rest of the season and his career with the NEC school is officially over.
He first sustained the injury eight games into the 2012-13 season, then re-tore the same ACL again this past July.
Boyd, who missed the 2009-10 season with a heart ailment, was granted a sixth year of eligibility by the NCAA and hoped to return at some point this season.
The 6-7 forward was the anchor of LIU's nucleus when healthy over the past few years and led the Blackbirds to back-to-back NCAA Tournaments in 2011 and 2012.
Boyd was named NEC Player of the Year in 2012 and averaged 18.5 points and 6.1 rebounds during that season.
