Knee injury likely ends USC F Cunningham's season
Southern California forward Kasey Cunningham is expected to miss the rest of the season after tearing a ligament in his left knee. The junior starter also tore the meniscus in his knee while grabbing a rebound in Saturday's loss to Loyola Marymount. He underwent an MRI on Monday at USC Hospital. Cunningham's latest major injury is another blow for the Trojans' rebuilding program under coach Kevin O'Neill, who took over in June after Tim Floyd abruptly resigned. Cunningham already has undergone three surgeries on his left knee, tearing the anterior cruciate ligament at least twice before. His 2007-08 season ended after nine games with a ligament injury, and he played just four games last season before tearing the same ligament.
