SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) Star Notre Dame center Brianna Turner, who suffered a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament in her left knee during the NCAA Tournament in late March, will miss the upcoming season to continue rehabilitation.
The 6-foot-3 Turner, who averaged 15.3 points, 7.1 rebounds and 2.5 blocks per game, announced on her Twitter account Tuesday that she would not rush back from the injury, which occurred during Notre Dame 88-82 overtime victory over Purdue on March 29.
"Looking forward to getting my body completely healthy again," she wrote.
