Tennessee Lady Vols forward Lou Brown tears ACL in practice
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee forward Lou Brown has torn her anterior cruciate ligament in preseason practice.
Lady Vols coach Holly Warlick announced Brown’s injury Friday and said the Washington State graduate transfer is out indefinitely Warlick said the injury occurred Wednesday.
Warlick said in a statement that “while she may be out of action due to this unfortunate injury, I would not be surprised to see Lou still find a way to impact this team in a positive manner as she goes through the recovery process.”
Brown, a 6-foot-3 forward from Melbourne, Australia, started 23 games for Washington State last season and averaged 6.4 points and a team-high 6 rebounds.
Tennessee opens the 2018-19 campaign Nov. 11 against Presbyterian after going 25-8 and reaching the second round of the NCAA Tournament last season.
