Wyoming's leading scorer, swingman Afam Muojeke, will miss the remainder of the season with a ruptured patella tendon in his left knee.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports Muojeke will undergo surgery on Wednesday. He suffered the injury while defending BYU's Tyler Haws during the first half of Wyoming's 81-66 loss to the Cougars.

Muojeke, the reigning Mountain West Conference Freshman of the Year, currently ranks third in the MWC for scoring, averaging 16.8 points per game.

Muojeke also averaged 3.8 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game while shooting 83.5 percent from the free-throw line.
