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.
