RICHMOND, Va. -- Richmond basketball coach Chris Mooney says guard and captain Nick Sherod will miss the coming season after tearing the ACL in his right knee in practice.

It's the second season-ending knee injury for the redshirt senior.

Sherod started 31 games for the Spiders last season, averaging 12.7 points and 5.4 rebounds. He led Richmond with 78 3-pointers and led the Atlantic 10 Conference by shooting 43.8% from 3-point range.

That was 10th best in the nation among Division I qualifiers.
