Knight Tears ACL in Right Knee
LAWRENCE, Kan. – The magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) report confirmed Thursday what Kansas women’s basketball fans feared in that sophomore guard Natalie Knight tore the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in her right knee late in Wednesday’s 78-75 come-from-behind overtime victory over Iowa State.
Knight started each of the Jayhawks’ previous 19 games and ranks fourth on the team in scoring with 8.3 points per game. She ranks second on the squad in assists (56), steals (34) and minutes played (565).
Knight left the Iowa State game Wednesday night at the 1:46 mark in the second half with the knee injury, after converting a fast-break layup. She finished the game with a career-best 21 points.
