Purdue's Carter out for season with knee injury

Purdue topped NC State Tuesday night in the ACC/Big East Challenge.

Purdue senior guard Sterling Carter will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury.

Carter tore his anterior cruciate ligament and his medial and lateral meniscus in his right knee during the second half of the Boilermakers' game at Nebraska last Saturday.

"We are obviously disappointed for Sterling and really feel for him," Purdue head coach Matt Painter said. "It's very unfortunate to see his collegiate career end like this. Sterling gave all he had for the program this year and did everything we asked of him since his arrival last summer."

Carter played in all 27 contests this year, starting five, after transferring from Seattle University last summer. He averaged 4.8 points per game, but scored a season-high 19 points in Purdue's 82-64 rout of Indiana February 15.
