Nerlens Noel is out for the rest of the year, according to Matt Jones of Kentucky Sports Radio, with what was suspected after his horrific injury last night–a torn ACL. Noel has likely played his last game at Kentucky, and will now begin the recovery process as he looks to the NBA Draft. He would have been in contention for the number one pick. Sad stuff to see such a promising player, and one who was really starting to emerge as the season went on, go down like this.
Surprising in that it happened so soon?
