Indiana's Etherington out for year with knee injury

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) -- No. 1 Indiana has lost sophomore forward Austin Etherington for the rest of the season because of a fractured left kneecap.

Etherington was hurt late in the first half of Saturday night's 100-69 victory over Central Connecticut State. After being called for a foul on the play, he stayed on the ground and was surrounded by teammates and coaches. He was lifted onto a stretcher and pointed to the crowd as he was wheeled off the court.

On Sunday, the team said Etherington had season-ending surgery.

Etherington's playing time had steadily increased as the Hoosiers (9-0) moved through the nonconference schedule.
