ACL tear sidelines IU women’s forward Jakubicek

Claire Jakubicek will miss the upcoming women’s basketball season after suffering an ACL tear in her right knee, Indiana announced Wednesday.

Jakubicek, a redshirt sophomore, sat out the 2012-13 season at IU after transferring from Northern Illinois. She would have challenged for a starting spot on a team that will feature 10 players — including seven freshmen — who weren’t in the mix a year ago.

“We are disappointed that Claire will miss the upcoming season with her recent ACL injury,” coach Curt Miller said in a statement. “She had worked hard during her transfer season and was prepared to be an impact player on the court for our young roster in 2013-14. We have no doubt she will attack her rehab process and be ready to contribute in the future.”

Jakubicek was Mid-American Conference Freshman of the Year during her lone season at Northern Illinois. She averaged 11 points per game, while shooting 46.3 percent from the field. She was also second on the Huskies with 5.1 rebounds per game.

Bummer. Was looking forward to seeing her contribute this season. Hope she heals quickly.

This is a huge setback for the team, she would have undoubtedly been a starter! Her floor experience from her freshman season at her previous school would have been invaluable! Her size and leadership would have been very important to this young Hoosier team. She was a proven scorer at her previous school. So, I guess the term “Next man up” certainly applies here, although we would say woman. This young team will simply have to “woman up!” Go Hoosiers!

Cant we have a “special” women’s section so it does not get in the way of sports people care about?
