Forward – Kentucky
The University of Kentucky confirmed Friday morning that Poythress (knee) suffered a torn ACL and will miss the remainder of the season, Andrew Carter of the Charlotte Observer reports.
Poythress likely sustained the injury at some point during the Wildcats' narrow win over Columbia on Wednesday. While his averages (5.5 points, 3.8 rebounds, 0.3 assists) weren't especially remarkable, Poythress was regarded as the team's top defender on the perimeter, using his size and lateral quickness to suffocate the opposition's top threat. While the All-American-laden Wildcats have more than enough talent to cover for his absence, the junior will still be a big loss to the squad.
