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.
