Baylor’s Washington out for year after knee injury

Baylor guard Shanay Washington is out for the season after

tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in her left knee in

practice.

It’s the second significant personnel loss for the No. 2 Lady

Bears. Point guard Kelli Griffin quit the team days before the

season started.

Washington started 32 of 36 games as a freshman last season and

averaged 7.3 points and 3.2 rebounds per game. She had started all

five games of her sophomore year and was averaging 5 points and 1.6

rebounds.

The injury on Saturday was Washington’s third ACL tear. She

injured her right ACL in high school and tore it again during

rehabilitation. Her latest surgery isn’t scheduled yet.

Baylor will apply for a medical redshirt season.
