Leading scorer Larry Nance Jr. tore his right ACL in Wyoming's victory against Fresno State on Tuesday night and will miss the rest of the season, a source with direct knowledge of the situation said.

The Cowboys' coaching staff was informed of the severity of the injury Wednesday morning, the source said. Surgery for Nance is pending.

Nance, son of the former All-Star forward for the Phoenix Suns and Cleveland Cavaliers, had 17 points on 7-of-9 shooting before he crashed to the floor with 14:51 to play against the Bulldogs.

The Cowboys' leader in scoring, rebounds, blocks and steals stayed down for several minutes holding his right knee before being helped off, unable to put weight on the leg.
