Gasser scored 13 points (3-5 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT) with two assists in Sunday's game against Michigan.

Gasser stepped up with three makes from beyond the three-point arc. His long-range shooting opened up the lane for his teammates Frank Kaminsky and Sam Dekker to score some points. What will not show up on the stat sheet directly was his defense on Nik Stauskas and limited Michigan's leading scorer to 11 points.

Gasser tore his ACL and will miss the season, CBS Sports reports.

Gasser had recently been named the starting point guard for the Badgers, so coach Bo Ryan is off to Plan B. That plan includes redshirt freshman George Marshall and sophomore Treavon Jackson. Swingman Ryan Evans could also facilitate the offense.

Gasser chipped in 12 points (3-6 FG, 4-4 FT), two three-pointers, two rebounds, and one assist (versus two turnovers) in 36 minutes Thursday as Wisconsin beat up Montana during the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

After picking up only two steals in his past nine games, Gasser's current value rests in his ability to knock down the occasional trey (1.2 per game) along with a stellar free-throw percentage (85.5 percent).
