Stanford senior forward Andy Brown will miss the 2013-14 basketball season because of an anterior cruciate ligament tear in his right knee, coach Johnny Dawkins said Wednesday.
Brown was injured Tuesday during a team workout. It's the fourth ACL tear of Brown's career, three of which he has suffered since arriving on The Farm in the fall of 2009. The other three were in his left knee.
"Everyone associated with our program is saddened by Andy's latest injury," Dawkins said. "Nobody has worked harder to get back into playing shape."
Brown was coming off the first full season of his college career, averaging 6.2 points and 2.8 rebounds per game.
"I feel grateful to have been able to wear a Stanford uniform," Brown said. "I will do everything I can to help the team from the sideline this year."
Stanford's Alex Bowen had three goals as the U.S. men's water polo team improved to 1-1 at the FINA World Championships with a 16-3 rout of South Africa in Barcelona, Spain. Former Cardinal stars Tony Azevedo and Janson Wigo had two goals each.
