Evina Westbrook underwent successful knee (left) surgery on the 4th of June. She is expected to be out for 4 months. Supposedly the surgery was intended to correct knee issues that had been giving her problems for the last couple of years.

Was there any indication that her knee was a problem at UT?

That is such an unfair statement. Having once been a college athlete myself, I know very well that many times top athletes choose never to even mention to anyone that something is bothering them physically. Sometimes players decide to just tough it out and hope it just gets better in time rather than admit there is a problem.

Coaches can't read minds. We don't know the facts or history behind this, so I think it's wrong to blame the former staff for this.

She had knee issues during her two seasons. I am betting it is something that the medical staff initially thought could be managed through rehab. Avoiding surgery is always going to the first option but if the problem does not respond to the low intervention approach..........

You should have posted this on the BONEYARD. They discuss all things related to American Athletic Conference players.

Why in hell are you posting news about an American Athletic Conference player on this board?
My thinking because she is a former UT player who might play against us in January if her waiver is approved. Like I said in a previous post sorry the young lady is hurting and having surgery but not sorry if those limits UConn’s bodies for summer workouts or puts her behind the curve ball for learning his style of play.

All in all LV news has been slow unless we start posting about all these birthdays the coaches seemed to have bunched up 😃

Some LV news would be that they just put on the b-ball camp and the campers looked like they were having a great time plus I see the LV still covering up the tatoos so I guess that rule is still a rule.

I agree. Move on, aren't you tired of Holly living rent free in your head?
