Washington's Jarreau to miss season with knee injury

Washington forward Jernard Jarreau will miss the rest of the season with an ACL tear, the school announced Thursday.

The injury occurred during the Huskies' home opener against Seattle on Sunday.

The 6-10 sophomore was Washington's starting power forward against Seattle and isn't the only Huskies' frontcourt player on the mend. Junior Desmond Simmons underwent knee surgery last week and will be out until late December.

With two key frontcourt contributors out, look for Lorenzo Romar to use smaller lineups with multiple guards on the floor at the same time. This should mean an increased role for newcomers Mike Anderson and Darin Johnson, both of whom had strong debuts for Washington against Seattle.
