Tennessee senior Rawane “Pops” Ndiaye suffered a torn ACL in his right knee that will end his playing career with the Volunteers, according to reports Friday.

First-year coach Donnie Tyndall told the Knoxville News Sentinel that the 6-foot-10 reserve center will no longer be on the team, but will remain at Tennessee.

Tyndall said Ndiaye will be shifted to a medical scholarship that will not count toward the team’s NCAA-mandated limit of 13. This means UT has one vacant scholarship remaining for the 2014-15 season.

Ndiaye played one year at Tennessee after arriving from Indian Hills Community College in Ottumwa, Iowa. Ndiaye played 22 games last season and averaged 0.9 points, 1.0 rebounds and 3.3 minutes.

Ndiaye was injured during a pickup game last week, Tyndall told the newspaper.
