Wisconsin PG Gasser tears ACL, to use redshirt

Wisconsin junior guard Josh Gasser suffered a tear to his anterior cruciate ligament during practice and will miss the entire 2012-13 season, the UW Sports Medicine Staff announced Saturday.

Gasser, who played in each of his first two seasons in Madison, will use his redshirt season in 2012-13. He will have two seasons of eligibility remaining.

Here are Gasser’s stats in his first two seasons:

Per Game Team G GS MPG PPG RPG APG SPG BPG TOPG PFPG FG% 3P% FT%
2010-11 Wisc 34 30 28.1 5.9 3.9 2.2 0.5 0.1 0.9 2.4 .472 .302 .855
2011-12 Wisc 36 36 34.1 7.6 4.2 1.9 0.7 0.1 1.2 1.8 .464 .452 .783
Career 70 66 31.2 6.8 4.1 2.0 0.6 0.1 1.0 2.1 .468 .391 .812

Projected to be the Badgers’ starting point guard, Gasser was injured during the team’s practice session Saturday morning at the Kohl Center. He will be re-evaluated this week and is expected to undergo surgery shortly thereafter.

Gasser has started 66 games for the Badgers in his first two seasons, averaging 6.8 points and 4.06 rebounds per game. He averaged 34.1 minutes for UW last season, contributing 7.6 points per game and shooting 45.2 percent from 3-point range.
