Syracuse has started conference play with three straight victories, but Monday, the Orange got some unfortunate news regarding one of its best players. Star freshman forward Chris McCullough, who many pegged as a first-round NBA Draft talent, has a torn ACL in his right knee and will miss the rest of the 2014-2015 season. McCullough injured his knee on a fast break in the first half of Sunday’s game against Florida State. He called the injury “the worst pain” he’s felt.
