Jayhawks' lose leading scorer to knee injury
Monday, February 13, 2012
LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- Leading scorer Carolyn Davis will miss the remainder of the season for Kansas after tearing her ACL and dislocating her left knee in a loss to Kansas State.
Jayhawks coach Bonnie Henrickson announced the extent of the injury Monday. Davis felt to the court clutching her knee in the opening minutes of the Jayhawks' 47-43 loss Sunday. Her leg was immobilized and she was removed from the arena on a stretcher.
The 6-foot-3 junior had been averaging 17.5 points and scored at least 20 points eight times this season.
Kansas (17-7, 6-6 Big 12) missed a big opportunity to improve its NCAA tournament resume against the Wildcats, and now must play the stretch run without its best player. The Jayhawks' first game without Davis is Wednesday night at Iowa State.
