STANFORD, Calif. (AP) - Stanford forward Andy Brown's basketball playing career is over after tearing an anterior cruciate ligament in his knee for the fourth time since 2009.
Cardinal coach Johnny Dawkins said in a statement Wednesday that Brown tore the ACL in his right knee during a team workout Tuesday morning. Brown's previous ACL tears were in his left knee.
Dawkins said ``everyone associated with our program is saddened by Andy's latest injury. Nobody has worked harder to get back into playing shape.''
Brown thanked his coaches and teammates and said he ``will do everything I can to help the team from the sideline this year and am looking forward to all that we will accomplish.''
The senior was coming off the first full season of his career, averaging 6.2 points and 2.8 rebounds. He shot a team-best 48.5 percent from the floor.
