Creighton basketball's sophomore forward Martin Krampelj will miss the remainder of the 2017-18 season with a torn ACL in his left knee.
"Martin has been an important part of our team and I'm proud of the progress he's made to become one of the most improved players in the BIG EAST," head coach Greg McDermott said. "I'm looking forward to his surgery so we get him healthy and back on the court for two great years."
Krampelj suffered the injury in Wednesday night's 80-63 win over No. 19 Seton Hall. Creighton will have to replace the sophomore forward's production of 11.9 points and 8.1 rebounds per game.
