Villanova star Collin Gillespie will miss the remainder of the 2020-21 season after an MRI confirmed that he had torn his left MCL in Wednesday's victory over Creighton, the team announced Thursday.

"We are all devastated for Collin," Villanova head coach Jay Wright said in a statement. "He is the heart and soul of our program. We know we can't replace him. We all just want to step up and play so that we honor him.

"Collin is as mentally tough and resilient as any player we have had here. I know he will get through this and make it a positive for his career."
