Maryland sophomore Pe’Shon Howard will miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL in his right knee, head coach Mark Turgeon announced Friday evening on Twitter.

“Today we learned that Pe’Shon Howard tore his ACL,” Turgeon tweeted. “Feel awful for him, he’s a great kid and teammate. We’ll miss him on the court.

“Tough year for him. We’ll fully support him through rehab and know that he will make a strong comeback.”

Howard, a powerful 6-foot-3 guard from Los Angeles, missed the first nine games of the season after injuring his foot in the preseason. Many thought he would miss up to three months with the injury, but his rehab went quicker than expected.

Howard has averaged 32.9 minutes since his return, putting up 6.5 points, 3.7 rebounds and 3.7 assists. Maryland is 8-6 with Howard in the lineup.

Pe'Shon Howard tears ACL, out for season

I'm certainly sympathetic to Pe'Shon's plight. I too busted an ACL. With good rehab he should be fine for next year.

I'm less sympathetic to "fans" who delight in showing their awesome mental prowess and agility by uttering sophomoric taunts about other schools.

Pe'Shon Howard tears ACL, out for season

without a true point guard and some tough games ahead, will be interesting to see how this team does. Peshon was our best point guard, even though he isnt a natural point. Hopefully the team shows some mental toughness at Puke today
