Knee injury shelves VCU guard Briante Weber for season

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) The No. 14 VCU basketball team lost much more than a game on Saturday.

A school spokesman says Briante Weber, the team's point guard, will miss the rest of the season after tearing the ACL, MCL and meniscus in his right knee on Saturday. The injury occurred with just a few minutes left in the Rams' 64-55 loss to Richmond.

Weber, one of the team's leaders, was driving in the lane and attempted to make a jump-stop when his knee buckled.

Weber was just 12 steals away from the NCAA career record and seemed certain to surpass it by a wide margin.
