Purdue loses senior guard

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WISH) – Purdue senior guard Sterling Carter will miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL, according to head coach Matt Painter.  Carter suffered the knee injury in the second half of Purdue’s game against Nebraska last Sunday.

“We are obviously disappointed for Sterling and really feel for him,” 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, who transferred from Seattle University last summer, was averaging 4.8 points a game and had a season-high 19 points against IU.
