Nerlens Noel will miss the remainder of the season with a torn ACL.

Noel suffered the injury on Tuesday in Kentucky's loss to Florida.

Noel has been widely expected to be one of the first players selected in the 2013 NBA Draft.

Noel was initially supposed to be in the incoming freshman class of 2013, but reclassified for 2012.

That's rough. One of the players projected as possibly the number 1 pick in the draft next year and he's out for the rest of the season. It's always sad to see such promising players get injured so early in their life. Hopefully he doesn't drop too much in the draft...
