Ward crumples during warmup drill
A spokesman said Ward, who has started at both point and off guard, would not play against Pittsburgh in the championship game of the CBE Classic. He was averaging 23 minutes and 6.7 points for the Longhorns, who came into the game 3-0.
Ward was put on a gurney and wheeled into the Texas dressing room. He collapsed to the floor while in the layup line. He was later diagnosed with a ruptured quadriceps and will miss the rest of the season, the school announced Wednesday.
