Nerlens Noel injures knee running into basket against Florida (Video)

Back on Tuesday night, University of Kentucky basketball fans had to hold their breaths after freshman Nerlens Noel injured his right knee against the University of Florida.

The play happened in the second half as Noel tried to chase down Florida guard Mike Roasario attempting a lay-up.

Watch as Noel's right knee hits the padding underneath the hoop and Nerlens falls down to the ground in noticeable pain from the collision:

Currently, the extent of Noel's injury is unknown but it is believed that the best case scenario is that he has a hyper-extended knee.

UPDATE: Noel is out for the rest of the season with a torn ACL.
