South Carolina women’s basketball senior guard Lindsey Spann is out for the remainder of the 2017-18 season with a knee injury, the team announced Sunday.
The Penn State graduate transfer played in 15 of the Gamecocks’ 24 games this season. She missed two separate stints earlier this year with different knee injuries.
It’s a big blow to the Gamecocks. Spann was the Gamecocks; best 3-point shooter. Freshman Bianca Jackson has been starting in her place.
The team already lost senior guard Bianca Cuevas-Moore for the 2017-2018 campaign with an ACL injury.
Through seven games, including two against top-15 opponents, Spann led the SEC in 3-point percentage (.550) and was second in the league in made 3s per game (3.1) before missing several games over the next three months due to injuries. She finishes her Gamecock career averaging 10.3 points on 46.2 percent shooting, including 45.2 percent accuracy from outside the arc.
South Carolina hosts Florida on Sunday at 1 p.m. at Colonial Life Arena. The game will air on SEC Network.
