Women's Basketball Freshman Angie Jones Suffers Torn ACL
Oct. 28, 2002
SEATTLE, Wash. - Washington women's basketball freshman Angie Jones (Seattle, Wash) tore the anterior cruciate ligament in her right knee during practice last week and will miss the start of the 2002-2003 season, head coach June Daugherty announced Monday.
Jones suffered the injury in practice Tues., Oct. 22, and an MRI performed Friday confirmed the extent of the injury. The 5-9 guard tore the same ACL during her junior year at Holy Names Academy. Surgery to repair the ligament will be scheduled in a few weeks.
Jones joins sophomore Kirsten Brockman (Snohomish, Wash.) on the Husky injured reserve list to start the 2002-2003 season. Brockman is out for the year, recovering from surgery performed in August to repair a stress fracture in her left foot. The 6-0 forward played in 10 games as a freshman last year, scoring 21 points.
Washington tips off the season with an exhibition game vs. Bay Area Pro-Am at Bank of America Arena, Sunday, Nov. 10, at 1 p.m. The Huskies will open the regular season on the road at Boise State, Friday, Nov. 22, at 7 p.m. MT.
