USC Ladies Hoops Update

The Women's basketball team has been struggling just like the men have and their star player is facing another knee injury...

Senior guard Jacki Gemelos might be done for the season after hurting her left knee late in the first half of Sunday's 71-70 loss to No. 10 Texas A&M.

Sydney Carter hit a 3-pointer with 10 seconds left to lift the Aggies (8-2).

Gemelos, who entered the game averaging 11.6 points and a team-high 8 rebounds, was injured as she drove the lane 3:37 before the break. She writhed on the floor beneath the basket and sobbed in the hushed arena.

Gemelos spent the second half on the bench with her knee heavily wrapped and will undergo further evaluation once the team returns to Los Angeles. She was one of the nation's top recruits out of Stockton, Calif., six years ago, but has fought knee injuries throughout her career.

Horrible news Gemelos.

'SC had aTm on the ropes but without Gemelos the fight became that much tougher.

Gemelos will have knee evaluated later today.

Lets hope for the best...
