HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) -Connecticut leading scorer A.J. Price has a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, and will have surgery next week.
The junior guard was injured midway through the first half of Connecticut's 70-69 overtime loss Friday to San Diego in the first round of the NCAA tournament.
Price led the Huskies with 14.9 points and a team-high 191 assists.
UConn officials said Saturday that Price is expected to need six months of rehabilitation, but likely will not miss any of next season.
