Princeton forward Hans Brase to miss basketball season

PRINCETON, N.J. (AP) Princeton co-captain Hans Brase will miss the 2015-16 season because of a knee injury.

The Ivy League school said Saturday night Brase has a torn anterior cruciate ligament. He will return for his senior season in 2016-17.

Brase was the team's second-leading scorer and leading rebounder the last two seasons, averaging 11.5 points and 7.5 rebounds. The forward was the league's ninth-leading scorer and fourth-leading rebounder last season.

Brase did not play in Princeton's season-opening win over Rider on Friday night.
