Leading scorer Larry Nance Jr. tore his right ACL in Wyoming's victory against Fresno State on Tuesday night and will miss the rest of the season, the school announced Wednesday.

Surgery for Nance is pending, a source said.

Nance, son of the former All-Star forward for the Phoenix Suns and Cleveland Cavaliers, had 17 points on 7-of-9 shooting before he crashed to the floor with 14:51 to play against the Bulldogs.

The Cowboys' leader in scoring, rebounds, blocks and steals stayed down for several minutes holding his right knee before being helped off, unable to put weight on the leg.

Information from the Associated Press was used in this report.
