WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (21Alive) - Purdue men's basketball guard Sterling Carter's college basketball career came to an end Sunday due to a knee injury.

The university announced Monday that Carter tore his ACL, MCL and lateral meniscus in his right knee in the second half of the Boilermakers' 76-57 loss at Nebraska. He will miss the remainder of the season.

Carter's knee buckled while driving to the basket.

Carter, a 5th year transfer student from Seattle University, averaged 4.8 points per game. He played in all 27 games for Purdue, averaging 15.1 minutes of action.

Carter is third on the team in three-pointers (28) and second on the team in steals (25).
