CHICAGO -- DePaul freshman DeJuan Marrero will miss the season because of a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.

The school says he was injured Wednesday at practice and an MRI on Thursday confirmed the tear.

The 6-foot-5 Marrero averaged 20 points and 14 rebounds as a senior while leading Bowman Academy in Gary, Ind., to a Class 2A state runner-up finish.
