Columbia College women's basketball player tears ACL

Friday, December 2, 2011 | 8:15 p.m. CST

COLUMBIA — Kayla Rice tore an anterior cruciate ligament in her knee Friday at practice, Columbia College women's basketball coach Mike Davis said.

The senior guard was the American Midwest Conference player of the week last week with a 27-point game against the University of the Cumberlands.

Rice was not available for comment.

After injuries to teammates Laurel Wichmann and Amanda Phillips earlier this season, Rice's injury leaves the Cougars with eight healthy players.
