FAYETTEVILLE – University of Arkansas junior Lyndsay Harris suffered a knee injury Thursday and is lost for the remainder of the 2010-11 Razorback women’s basketball season.
Harris, a Hoover, Ala., native was involved in a collision under the basketball with 1:20 left in regulation tearing her anterior cruciate ligament and her medial collateral ligament. She was evaluated by the Razorback Sports Medicine staff on site and received further evaluation and treatment upon return to campus.
"Everyone in this program is saddened by the news that Lindsay has suffered a season-ending injury," Arkansas head coach Tom Collen said. "We were hoping for the best possible news regarding its severity and instead received the worst. A torn ACL and MCL will require surgery and rehabilitation in the off season. If there is such a thing as good news, it’s that Lindsay may be the hardest-working athlete in our program and more than capable of having a full recovery in time for next season. I’m certain that any words of encouragement would mean a lot to Lindsay."
Harris became the 24th player in program history to reach the 1,000-point milestone. She finishes her junior season averaging 12.3 point per game with 356 points scored. She was the top-ranked three-point shooter in the Southeastern Conference averaging 2.79 threes per game and 8.0 three point attempts per game.
Harris is scheduled to have surgery later this month.
