TULSA, Oklahoma -

The Oral Roberts men's basketball team has lost a key part of its defense with the news that guard Ken Holdman has a torn anterior cruciate ligament or ACL and will miss the rest of the season.

ORU team doctors confirmed the news Tuesday after Holdman received an MRI on his injured right knee Monday which confirmed the tear.

"Obviously we hate this for Ken," said Head Coach Scott Sutton. "He has been one of the most consistent players for us throughout practice and we were all looking forward to him having a great year. Hopefully the surgery and rehab will go well and we look forward to having him back for a fifth year."

Holdman was injured in Sunday's exhibition game against Northeastern State University.

The senior guard came off the bench in the first half and not long after entering the game--while playing defense, he closed out on an NSU player about to shoot and his right knee buckled underneath him.

Holdman left the game and did not return. Many expected him to be ok, but he underwent an MRI for precautionary reasons.

A Tulsa native and graduate from East Central High School, Holdman has played in 92 career games for the Golden Eagles.

The Golden Eagles begin the regular season on Friday on the road against West Virginia at 8 p.m.
