A bad day just got worse for Oregon State women’s basketball. The Beavers dropped out of the top-10 in today’s polls and in far worse news; it was officially announced that Kennedy Brown is lost for the season with a torn ACL.
Brown went down with a non-contact knee injury at Friday’s home win against Arizona State. The freshman and former McDonald’s All-American has started every game she’s played in. Kennedy Brown is the 2nd starter-caliber player to be ruled our for the season (Taya Corosdale - hamstring).
The Beavers will keep battling with an eye on getting a first round bye for the Pac-12 tournament. The top-4 seeds get a first round bye. Oregon State obviously still has big goals for the NCAA Tournament, but this season has been especially turbulent for the team. Steve Gress from the Corvallis Gazette-Times has a great story on the hardships this team has already faced.
Oregon State will now head out on the road to face USC and UCLA for the first and only time of the regular-season.
