PROVO, Utah (AP) -- Brigham Young sophomore forward Chris Collinsworth will have career-ending microfracture ankle surgery.

Basketball coach Dave Rose announced the news in a statement issued by the school Monday.

Collinsworth said it was time to move on, considering this is the third straight year he has had surgery.

Collinsworth's BYU career began in 2007-08 when he played 35 games and started six before serving a two-year church mission in Australia. That season he averaged 4.8 rebounds and 3.2 points for a Cougar team that won 27 games and reached the NCAA tournament.
