Wisconsin basketball player Josh Gasser talks about torn ACL that will force him to miss season

The Wisconsin men's basketball team suffered a major loss this past Saturday when junior guard Josh Gasser tore the ACL in his left knee during practice that will force him to miss the entire 2012-13 season. Gasser stopped by practice Tuesday in Madison to talk about his injury, sayying he will use this year as a chance to grow as a player from an entire different perspective.
Josh Gasser says, "I guess I'm going to treat this year like a coaching internship I guess, get so see it from a different perspective, get to watch from the sideline, courtside, that's what guys who have reached to me have said. You're going to learn some things that you never thought that you would learn out there and you will realize how much you love basketball and that's going to help you in the long run. So I'm definitely going to take this opportunity to learn some things off the court, help coach out, coach a little bit and see if I like it."
