Xavier got the worst news possible on Monday when an MRI revealed that sophomore guard Edmond Sumner suffered a season-ending torn ACL in his left knee in Xavier’s game vs. St. John’s at Madison Square Garden on Sunday.
A date for surgery has yet to be determined.
Sumner is Xavier’s second-leading scorer at 14.4 points per game to go with 4.9 assists and 4.4 rebounds.
He is projected as the No. 23 pick in the NBA Draft by DraftExpress.com.
