ITBS is very common but I don't think I've ever encountered an IT tear.
Since the ITB inserts into the tibia.......and crosses the knee joint as it does (see figure), a force leading to a devastating knee injury that suddenly disrupts all the support/stabilizing structures of the knee joint, can indeed tear the band where it inserts or crosses the joint.
