W. Hoops PG out for season with torn ACL

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.

Half-court shot from South Bend

It seems like The Buzz has jumped on the Women's Hoops bandwagon. And for good reason -- the Quakers are off to their best start (4-1) in program history. Coach Mike McLaughlin's crew has been in South Bend, Ind. since yesterday afternoon in preparation for tonight's game against national runners-up Notre Dame. The Fighting Irish are undoubtedly the biggest test this team has faced in years, but if this video is any measure, the Red and Blue are ready to put up a fight tonight.

In a quick video tweeted from @PennWomensBball, sophomore Megan McCullough sinks a half-court shot during Penn's shootaround this afternoon. Apparently the players go up against the coaches after shootarounds -- the players lead the season, 2-0-1.
