Jan. 29, 2003
LOS ANGELES - USC women's basketball guard Aisha Hollans partially tore the medial cruciate ligament in her right knee against California on Jan. 24 and will likely miss three-to-six weeks of the season, USC head coach Chris Gobrecht announced on Wednesday, Jan. 29. The injury will not require surgery.
Hollans, a 5-9 junior from Berkeley, Calif., is a three-year starter for the Women of Troy. She is averaging 12.7 points and 5.9 rebounds in 18 games this season. Hollans led USC in scoring (17.6 ppg) in 2002 as a sophomore and was named to the All-Pac-10 first team.
She was replaced by senior forward Erin Young on Sunday, Jan. 26, when USC upset fifth-ranked Stanford, 75-73. Young is averaging 1.7 points and 1.5 rebounds this season. Freshman Meghan Gnekow has also spent time at the position and is averaging 5.8 points and 2.9 rebounds this season.
USC (9-11 overall, 4-5 in the Pac-10) travels to No. 25 Washington on Thursday, Jan. 30, at 7 p.m. and Washington State on Saturday, Feb. 1, at 7 p.m.
