Stephan Van Treese injured (again), out 'indefinitely'

On the same day Cincinnati failed to lose (selfish much, Bearcats?) to Syracuse, Stephan Van Treese suffered a knee injury. 

Official release from uoflsports.com:

University of Louisville forward Stephan Van Treese has been sidelined indefinitely after reinjuring his left knee in practice on Saturday.

Van Treese had missed all of practice with a left patellar tendon strain before participating in his first individual workout on Nov. 14. He returned to see his first action of the year at Butler and played in each of the last three games, producing a combined four points and six rebounds in 20 minutes as a valuable reserve at center and power forward.

Van Treese averaged 2.9 points, 3.5 rebounds and collected 21 steals as a sophomore when he started 12 games. He averaged 4.2 points and 4.6 rebounds in BIG EAST games.

Feel bad for Stephan. We are left to assume it's the same left patellar tendon that was (re)injured, and obviously hope it's not serious. With Rakeem Buckles nearing his return to the lineup, this setback will likely mean even fewer minutes to go around for Van Treese once he's healthy again. On the bright side, the Cardinal street clothes crew adds some sorely-needed height to its roster.

When's the last time U of L athletics had a full week of good news? 1986?
