Whitney Hand Out For Season

Talented Sooner guard Whitney Hand is out for the remainder of the 2009-2010 season with an ACL injury.

Well the Sooner's doctor office just keeps getting fuller and fuller. I don't know if someone has a voo-doo doll of our Sooner players somewhere, but this is just getting ridiculous. I will defer to the official Soonersports.com for the recap on this injury:

The University of Oklahoma sophomore, who was the 2009 Big 12 Freshman of the Year, underwent an MRI Monday morning that revealed a complete tear of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in her right knee.

"All of us are aching individually and collectively for Whitney right now because she loves to play basketball," OU head coach Sherri Coale said. "Although we lose her tangible presence on the floor we won't lose the intangible quality of her leadership. We would ask the Sooner nation to keep Whitney in their thoughts and prayers and to stand united alongside our team as we move forward in our season."

Hand's injury occurred near the end of the first half of OU's win over San Diego State on Friday, Nov. 27, at the U.S. Virgin Islands Paradise Jam.

Oklahoma will pursue a medical hardship waiver to preserve Hand's eligibility.

This leaves the OU women's basketball team with just 9 players to work with for the remainder of the season.
