Washington Huskies' Jernard Jarreau out for season


The Washington Huskies got terrible news Wednesday.

Forward Jernard Jarreau tore his the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during Washington’s 88-78 victory over Seattle University Sunday.

Jarreau’s season lasted less than two minutes before he went down with the injury. He scored one point and had one steal in those two minutes.

The Huskies announced the results of his MRI Wednesday morning.

According to the Associated Press, “Jarreau was injured when he went down awkwardly on a breakaway with 18:25 left in the first half of the opener against Seattle on Sunday. Jarreau appeared to be clipped by Seattle’s Isiah Umipig as he went up for the basket and he landed in a heap. Jarreau was on the court for several minutes before being helped to the locker room.”

Jarreau, a 6’10, 220 lb. sophomore out of New Orleans, Louisiana, was a starter for the Huskies.

During the 2012-13 season, he averaged 3.2 points, 2.6 rebounds and 0.4 blocks in 12.7 minutes per game.

The Huskies will be back in action Thursday night when they host the University of California Irvine at 11:00 pm EST.
