Louisville’s Rakeem Buckles, out for season
Louisville forward Rakeem Buckles will miss the remainder of the season after tearing a ligament in his left knee, the team announced on Tuesday.
Buckles suffered the injury during Monday’s loss to Marquette.
“All of us are just crushed,” coach Rick Pitino said in a statement Tuesday.
Buckles averaged 4.0 points and 3.8 rebounds in 11 games for the Cardinals, who have lost five of their last seven games.
