SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - Gonzaga forward Austin Daye didn't come
out as well as he thought from a hard fall last week.

have injured a tendon in the hamstring of his right leg.
Instead, the Spokesman-Review of Spokane reports that an MRI has
shown the 6-foot-10 sophomore from Irvine, Calif., has a partially
torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee.
Daye now expects to undergo surgery in three or four days.
Last year, in his freshman season, he averaged 10.5 points and
4.7 rebounds. has projected him as the No. 9 pick in the 2009
