Kentucky superstar freshman Nerlens Noel suffered a serious knee injury during Monday night’s loss to Florida while chasing down a block.
Wednesday their worst fears were confirmed as Noel has torn his ACL. The freshman center will miss the remainder of the season.
Noel was in consideration for the #1 overall pick in the draft before the injury. He will now have the decision of whether to enter the 2013 NBA Draft or return to Kentucky for his sophomore season. Smart money says he turns pro and will still be selected among the top five picks in the draft.
