 STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) -Penn State senior forward Geary Claxton, the Big Ten's second-leading scorer, will miss the rest of the season after injuring his left knee during the Nittany Lions' 80-55 loss to No. 17 Wisconsin on Tuesday night.
Claxton fell to the floor with about 13 minutes left in the first half after trying to rebound his own missed shot. He winced and held his hands over his face as trainers looked at the leg before walking to the locker room with a slight limp.
Team doctor Wayne Sebastianelli said Claxton hurt his anterior cruciate ligament, and would be further evaluated Wednesday.
``It's devastating for Geary. I went into halftime, and told him I loved him and hugged him,'' Penn State coach Ed DeChellis said after the game.
Entering Tuesday, Claxton was averaging 18.7 points, second only to Indiana's Eric Gordon (23.0) in scoring in the conference. Claxton's 8.9 rebounds were second to the Hoosiers' D.J. White (10.9)
Claxton missed his only two field goal attempts and he did not grab a rebound, ending his streak of four straight double-doubles. He has nine this season.
It was the first time Claxton had not scored in a game in his career.
