Anton Gill will miss the remainder of the 2016-17 Nebraska men’s basketball season after suffering a ruptured patella tendon in his right knee. Coach Tim Miles announced Gill’s injury on Tuesday.

Gill, a 6-foot-3 guard from Raleigh, North Carolina, suffered the injury on Sunday evening during a team workout. Test results on Monday confirmed the ruptured patella tendon.
