SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) – Notre Dame junior forward Brianna Turner will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury, a major blow to the NCAA Tournament hopes of the top-seeded Fighting Irish.
Notre Dame announced Tuesday that Turner tore the anterior cruciate ligament in her left knee Sunday night during a second-round win over Purdue. She leads the team this season with 15.3 points and 7.1 rebounds per game, and also has 86 blocks — sixth-best for a single season in Notre Dame history.
Notre Dame faces Ohio State on Friday night in the Sweet 16 in Lexington, Kentucky.
