KK Houser Injury: Senior Guard Out With Torn ACL

Michael Hickey-US PRESSWIRE

Purdue loses one of its best players to a torn ACL, because we're Purdue.

Senior guard KK Houser left yesterday's 89-73 loss to Michigan State with a knee injury. Since we're Purdue, you probably don't need to guess how it turned out:

Houser, a redshirt senior, had already missed the entire 2010-11 season with a torn ACL. This injury will, unfortunately, end her career as a Boilermaker. Purdue sits at 15-7 and 5-5 in the midst of a very tough Big Ten slate, but they have now lost two in a row to Penn State and Michigan State. She is Purdue's leading scorer at 15.9 points per game and the team's top facilitator with 115 assists on the season.

The lady Boilers have six games left before the Big Ten Tournament and probably need three more victories to feel safe about reaching the NCAAs.
