All-purpose guard Jesse Carr will miss the 2012-13 season.

Colorado State guard Jesse Carr tore his ACL about two weeks ago and will likely miss the 2012-2013 season, school officials reported Thursday.

Carr, a fifth-year senior from Ainsworth, Neb., played at both shooting guard and point guard on last season's NCAA Tournament team, averaging 7.1 points per game while leading the team in assists, and was likely to assume a similar role on this year's team.

It is expected that Carr's minutes at shooting guard will go to Daniel Bejarano, a transfer from Arizona who had been a four-star recruit but could not break into the rotation in Tucson. At point guard, Colorado State will likely rely upon senior Dorian Green, who was the team's primary ballhandler last season. Shooting guard Wes Eikmeier could also handle the point when needed.

As for 2013-14, Carr would likely be eligible for a medical redshirt, allowing him a sixth year of eligibility should he wish to stay with the team.
