TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -Connecticut scoring leader A.J. Price injured his left knee Friday against San Diego and did not return to the NCAA tournament game.
The Huskies lost the first-round matchup in the West Regional, 70-69 in overtime.
The junior point guard landed awkwardly on his knee while driving to the basket with 9:39 to play in the first half. He was carried off the floor, examined on the bench and then helped to the locker room for more tests.
He briefly returned to the bench on crutches, but wasn't around for the start of the second half.
Price entered the game averaging 14.9 points, with a team-leading 191 assists. He was scoreless when the injury happened.
The game was tied at 16 when Price fell. Without him, San Diego led 34-29 at halftime and opened an 11-point lead early in the second half.
