Angel Goodrich, a red-shirt freshman on the Kansas University women’s basketball team, will miss the remainder of the season after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament and meniscus damage in her right knee during Tuesday’s 70-68 loss to No. 15 Oklahoma State.
Goodrich, who missed the entire 2008-09 season after tearing her left ACL, left the game with just under 2:30 remaining in the second half after a collision with an Oklahoma State player and didn’t return.
Midway through the first half Tuesday, Goodrich had to be helped from the court and led into the locker room after a fall near the baseline appeared to aggravate the right knee, which coach Bonnie Henrickson said was tweaked during KU’s Dec. 30 victory over Pepperdine. She returned late in the first half.
Goodrich will have surgery this month and is expected to return next season as a sophomore. She was averaging 7.1 assists, 6.8 points and 2.7 rebounds.
