Knee issues

The Kansas women's basketball team has had its share of knee injuries over the past few seasons:

Oct. 29, 2008 — Angel Goodrich (torn ACL)

Jan. 12, 2010 — Angel Goodrich (torn ACL)

Feb. 2, 2010 — Danielle McCray (torn ACL)

Feb. 12, 2012 — Carolyn Davis (dislocated knee)

Jan. 30, 2013 — Natalie Knight (torn ACL)

Kansas sophomore guard Natalie Knight tore the ACL in her right knee late in Wednesday’s 78-75 come-from-behind overtime victory over Iowa State, KU confirmed Friday. She likely will miss the rest of the season.

Knight started each of the Jayhawks’ previous 19 games and ranks fourth on the team in scoring with 8.3 points per game. She is second on the squad in assists (56), steals (34) and minutes played (565).

Knight left the Iowa State game Wednesday night at the 1:46 mark in the second half with the knee injury after putting in a fast-break layup. She finished the game with a career-high 21 points.
