UNIVERSITY PARK Penn States backcourt depth has gotten a little thinner, as incoming freshman guard Lindsey Spann has suffered a tear to her right anterior cruciate ligament during a workout.
She had successful surgery to repair her knee on Monday and a timetable for her return has not been set.
Although it's a disappointing start to her career, Lindsey has displayed a great attitude and approach to this unfortunate situation, Lady Lion head coach Coquese Washington said. She will work hard in rehab and return to the court ready to be a player of tremendous impact.
The native of Laurel, Md., was the 22nd-ranked player by Collegiate Girls Basketball Report and 88th-rated player by Blue Star Basketball. She averaged 15.9 points, 5.3 assists and 2.4 steals with an 80 percent free throw percentage as a senior in helping Good Counsel High School to a 25-5 record.
