LOS ANGELES (AP) — UCLA freshman guard Tyger Campbell has a torn ACL in his left knee and will miss the upcoming season, making him the third player to be sidelined.
The school said Tuesday that Campbell got hurt in practice Sunday.
He averaged 15.5 points and 7.2 assists as a senior at La Lumiere School in La Porte, Indiana, while leading the team to a 23-4 record last season. The 5-foot-11, 170-pounder is from Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
Freshman forward Shareef O’Neal, the son of Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal, also will sit out the season because of a heart condition he has described as “risky.”
O’Neal will take a medical redshirt after undergoing surgery.
