Lydia Young Will Miss Remainder Of Season
The Washington women's basketball team was dealt some unfortunate news this week when team doctors recommended Lydia Young have surgery on her ailing right knee. The senior forward has not played this season because of tendinitis.
Here's Coach Tia Jackson on the injury to Young:
"We never want to see any of our players go down to injury, and it saddens all of us that Lydia has suffered a knee condition that will not allow her to successfully participate at this level. In the upcoming weeks, she will undergo a surgical procedure to promote the long-term health of her knee, but regrettably, she will not be returning to competitive basketball. Lydia has a great medical team here at the University of Washington and a Husky family offering her tremendous support during this difficult time. We know Lydia is terribly disappointed that she cannot continue on the court during her senior year, but we intend to use her leadership, experience and enthusiasm to help guide the team through the rest of the season."
