Penn State's Sasa Borovnjak tears ACL
The team said Monday the injury occurred without any contact during a team workout last week. Preseason practice officially begins Friday.
The 6-foot-9 Borovnjak played 18 games last season as a freshman, averaging 6.8 minutes and 1.8 points. He was expected to play a more prominent role off the bench as a sophomore.
Penn State is trying to rebound from an 11-20 season.
