LAWRENCE, Kan. — Leading scorer Carolyn Davis will miss the remainder of the season for Kansas after tearing her anterior cruciate ligament and dislocating her left knee in a loss to Kansas State.
Jayhawks women's basketball coach Bonnie Henrickson announced the extent of the injury Monday. Davis fell to the court clutching her knee in the opening minutes of the Jayhawks' 47-43 loss Sunday. Her leg was immobilized and she was removed from the arena on a stretcher.
The Missouri women's basketball team will head to Lawrence to play Kansas on Feb. 18 at 1 p.m. The Tigers have yet to win a conference game.
The 6-foot-3-inch junior had been averaging 17.5 points and scored at least 20 points eight times this season.
Kansas (17-7, 6-6 Big 12) missed a big opportunity to improve its NCAA tournament resume against the Wildcats, and now must play the stretch run without its best player. The Jayhawks' first game without Davis is Wednesday night at Iowa State.
