BYU basketball coach Dave Rose announced on Tuesday that Elijah Bryant is done for the remainder of the Cougars’ season with a knee injury.

“(Bryant) re-injured his knee in the St. Mary’s game,” Rose said. “So he is done for the season.”

The redshirt sophomore averaged 11.7 points, 3.6 rebounds and 2.2 assists for BYU basketball this season. He missed 10 games earlier in the year with knee/ankle injuries.

Davin Guinn will replace Bryant in the Cougars’ starting lineup. It is Guinn’s first start for BYU basketball.

Freshman guard TJ Haws said the team hopes to rally around the loss.

“It’s tough when any of your guys go down,” Haws said. “We feel for them, but now is the time to come together and have guys step up.”

BYU basketball has already lost senior captains Kyle Davis and L.J. Rose to season-ending injuries.

The Cougars will host UT Arlington at 9 p.m. in the Marriott Center on Wednesday, March 15.
