Creighton's Martin Krampelj out for season after tearing ACL

OMAHA, Neb. -- Creighton forward Martin Krampelj will miss the rest of the season with a major knee injury.

The school says Krampelj tore the ACL in his left knee during the Bluejays' game against No. 19 Seton Hall on Wednesday night.

The sophomore from Slovenia started all 19 games and averages 11.9 points and 8.1 rebounds per game. His 67.1 percent shooting ranks among the national leaders.

Coach Greg McDermott said Krampelj was one of the most improved players in the Big East and that he looks forward to him returning next season.
