Stanford forward Andy Brown tears ACL for fourth time 

STANFORD — Stanford forward Andy Brown's basketball playing career is over after tearing an anterior cruciate ligament in his knee for the fourth time since 2009.

Cardinal men's coach Johnny Dawkins said in a statement Wednesday that Brown tore the ACL in his right knee during a team workout Tuesday morning. Brown's previous ACL tears were in his left knee.

"Everyone associated with our program is saddened by Andy's latest injury," Dawkins said. "Nobody has worked harder to get back into playing shape, having already experienced three tears and waiting two full years before putting on a uniform."

Brown was coming off the first full season of his career, averaging 6.2 points and 2.8 rebounds.

Brown received his undergraduate degree in communication last month. He is now working toward a master's degree in communication and will remain a part of the team next season, which would have been his last.
