MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- West Virginia says Da'Sean Butler has undergone surgery to repair a torn ACL in his left knee.

WVU basketball spokesman Bryant Messerly says Butler had surgery Thursday at The Andrews Institute in Gulf Breeze, Fla.

Butler was hurt during a hard collision in the Mountaineers' loss to Duke in the Final Four in Indianapolis. The senior finished his career as the third-leading scorer in WVU history with 2,095 points.

Teammate Darryl "Truck" Bryant underwent surgery on Wednesday to repair a fractured right foot.
