Love will miss season with knee injury

EVANSVILLE, Ind. University of Southern Indiana senior guard Kenny Love (South Bend, Indiana) will miss the entire 2007-08 season after suffering a torn patella tendon in a lay-up drill at Midnight Madness Sunday evening at the Physical Activities Center. Love underwent surgery to repair the left knee Monday morning and could face a recovery period of six months.

The last three Midnight Madness events have been an unlucky experience for the Screaming Eagles. USI lost the services of Geoff Van Winkle and Brandon Hopf the last two seasons with broken feet.

Love, who would have competed for one of the two starting guard positions, played in 35 games last season off the bench and averaged 7.8 points, 2.9 rebounds, and 2.2 assists per game. He shot 45.1 percent from the field (97-215) and 83.3 percent from the line (55-66).

"Kenny (Love) was going to be a major contributor this season," said USI Head Coach Rick Herdes. "Even though he won't be on the court, I'm sure he will find a way to contribute and help this team throughout the year."

The Eagles, who are practicing today from 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m., make their game debut on November 10 in an exhibition game at 7:30 p.m.
