The Big Ten Network reports via PurdueSports.com that Purdue senior forward Robbie Hummel will miss the 2010-11 season after suffering a torn ACL in practice on Saturday. This is obviously devastating news for Hummel, a senior who torn an ACL last February, and the Boilers, who are (were?) considered  to be a national title contender this season under coach Matt Painter.

“This is obviously disappointing for Robbie, as well as our team, since he worked so hard to return from the tear he suffered in February,” Purdue head coach Matt Painter said in a release. “As he begins his rehab and recovery, we’ll persevere together and provide Robbie with all the support possible. I have no doubt he’ll continue to play a pivotal role this season as a leader of our team.”
