Sara Mosiman To Have Surgery But Return Is Hopeful
Sara Mosiman will have surgery on Dec. 16 to have a titanium rod inserted in her leg, which will put the senior out of action for the next 2-3 months. Mosiman had missed the past two Huskies games because of shin splints.
The news, announced by Coach Tia Jackson earlier today, is an obvious blow for a Huskies team preparing to travel to Michigan to face No. 16 Michigan State. Mosiman was third on the team in scoring at 7.5 ppg and provides a toughness not quantifiable in statistics.
Mosiman had the procedure 18 months ago in her left leg.
"She's in familiar territory," Jackson said. "She definitely didn't want to deal with something like this her senior year but unfortunately this is where we are."
The goal going forward for Mosiman is to play on senior night against Oregon on March 7. While she plans to explore all of her options regarding her future, Mosiman said she had circled that date as a comeback possibility.
Kristi Kingma has started the past two games for the Huskies, scoring 18 points in wins over UCF and Seattle University.
