    This is terrible

    Forward Toccara Ross, the Cyclones' lone senior, suffered a knee injury at the end of the first half and emerged in the second half on crutches and a length-of-the-leg brace on her right leg. She will be examined to see if she has a torn knee ligament.

    That would not be good, especially with outside game not being up to par. But the full leg brace does not look like a good sign.

    I really, really, really, really hope she's just fine and will be back in action soon. A torn ligament would spell all kinds of trouble for our team. We have lots of stellar players, but Ross is a linchpin between a number of skill areas, it seems. Plus, she's a damn good player and it's fun to watch her go.

    Not good; hopefully she will be able to play again this year.

    If worse comes to worst and she couldn't play, couldn't she get a medical redshirt since this was only our 10th game? She is the only senior we have on the roster too!

    She probably could get a medical redshirt; the question is whether she would want to. Adding a year onto your college career when you're a freshman isn't a big deal. Adding a year on when you're a fifth-year senior is. I'm assuming she's close to finishing her degree.

    Re: This is terrible

    Isn't she just a 4th year senior? I read on hoopscoop.net that she is on track to graduate in May, so your point is valid either way.

    Re: This is terrible

    Just noticed on cyclones.com that she is out for the year with a torn ACL. That is not good.
