Pittsburgh, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Pittsburgh forward Durand Johnson will
miss the remainder of the season after suffering an ACL tear in Saturday's win
over Wake Forest.
The school made the announcement on Sunday.
Johnson, a redshirt sophomore, averaged 8.8 points in 16 games -- ranking
fourth on the team and tops among Pitt's bench players. He was second on the
team with 22 3-pointers made.
Panthers coach Jamie Dixon said the team was "thoroughly heartbroken" to lose
"With his passion for the game and outstanding work ethic, Durand has
contributed significantly to our success," Dixon said. "He has made so much
improvement in all facets of his game this year. I expect that same passion
and work ethic to help Durand return at 100 percent next season."
