The once-promising career of LIU-Brooklyn forward Julian Boyd is starting to look more and more like it has turned a corner into the cursed.
This past December, Boyd tore his ACL in a 97-70 victory over Rice, ending what had begun as an extremely productive season for the 6-7 Blackbird.
Now, this afternoon, CBS Sports's Jon Rothstein broke the news via Twitter that Boyd apparently re-tore his ACL over the summer:
BREAKING --- LIU's Julian Boyd re-tore his ACL over the summer, per a source. Best case for a possible return is January.— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) September 4, 2013
Boyd will be missed in LIU's frontcourt this fall; after winning the NEC title last year and advancing to a play-in game against James Madison, the Blackbirds were hoping to mount a repeat campaign.
Before his injury in December, Boyd was averaging 18.5 points and 6.1 rebounds per game.
