Just three games into the season, the Penn women’s basketball team has been dealt a significant blow. The team announced Friday that starting point guard Meghan McCullough has torn her ACL and is out for rest of the season. The injury came during the team’s most recent game on November 18 at Army.
This comes just a few weeks after Jackie Kates decided not to return to the team for her sophomore season. The injury to McCullough further depletes the Quakes' depth at guard while leaving the team without a true point guard.
Through the first three games of the season, McCullough led the team with 3.3 assists per game. She finishes the year with 3.3 points per contest while also averaging 2.7 rebounds per game.
Where the team will proceed from here is uncertain. The Quakers remains winless early in the season and now have a large hole to fill in their back court.
