Ball State’s Stovall lost for remainder of season

Muncie, IN (Sports Network) – Ball State junior guard Peyton Stovall will miss
the rest of the season due to a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left
knee.

Stovall suffered the injury in Saturday’s victory at Wright State, and is
expected to have surgery this month.

“The Ball State basketball program, players, coaches and fans are very
disappointed for Peyton,” said Ball State head coach Tim Buckley. “We are also
very hopeful for a full recovery and his return next season.”

Stovall injured the same knee March 7 in Ball State’s Mid-American Conference
Tournament game at Bowling Green.

Stovall entered his junior campaign as the top returning player in the Mid-
American Conference in scoring, field goal percentage and three-point field
goals made. Stovall ranked fifth in the MAC with his 16.7 points per game. He
was averaging 15 points in two games this season.
