Purdue's Hummel out for season

Purdue forward Robbie Hummel is done for the season with a torn ACL in his right knee.

The 6-foot-8 junior suffered the injury in the first half of the Boilermakers' win at Minnesota on Wednesday night when he landed awkwardly in the first half while driving to the basket.

Hummel had an MRI in Indianapolis on Thursday afternoon, which confirmed the initial diagnosis.

"Injuries are part of the game, but this is obviously disappointing on multiple levels because of everything Robbie Hummel has done for the program both on and off the court," Purdue coach Matt Painter said. "As he begins his recovery and rehab, Robbie will continue to provide integral leadership as we pursue our teams goals down the stretch."

Hummel was averaging 15.8 points and 7.2 rebounds per game for Purdue - which is 24-3 overall and leads the Big Ten with a 12-3 record.

The Boilermakers will play Michigan State Sunday in West Lafayette.
