NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Lipscomb junior Josh Williams will miss the rest of the season due to a torn left anterior cruciate ligament.

An MRI exam Tuesday confirmed the injury.

Williams was hurt in the first half of last week's 78-64 loss to Princeton. He averaged 12.6 points a game this season. The guard from Jackson, Mississippi, is scheduled for surgery Thursday.

Coach Casey Alexander says Williams was a critical part of the team, and the Bisons (4-9) will need several players to step up in his absence.
