KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Freshman Vicki Baugh tore the anterior cruciate ligament in her left knee during Tennessee’s NCAA championship win over Stanford.
Head trainer Jenny Moshak said Friday an MRI confirmed the torn ACL. She will rehabilitate the knee until she has surgery after final exams later this month.
The 6-foot-4 forward was injured with seven minutes to play Tuesday in Tampa, Fla., after making a driving lay-up that gave the Lady Vols a 55-44 lead en route to their eighth national title.
Baugh, who had eight points and four rebounds in 13 minutes against Stanford, played in all 38 games this season. She averaged 5.3 points and four rebounds a game.
