POCATELLO, Idaho -- Idaho State has lost starting guard David Schroeder to a torn ligament in his right knee, the school announced on Tuesday.

The sophomore, who averaged nearly 11 points in his freshman season and was named to the Big Sky Conference all-tournament team, tore the ligament as he was going up to dunk the ball during the Bengals' opening scrimmage shortly after 12 a.m. on Saturday.

Coach Doug Oliver said Schroeder planted his foot awkwardly and fell along the baseline.

The state A-2 player of the year at Salmon High School in 2000-2001, Schroeder could qualify for another redshirt season but cannot apply until after the 2005-2006 season.
