Oregon star Jillian Alleyne has a torn ACL and will miss the remainder of the season, per the university. Alleyne injured her knee this past Tuesday in practice.

Coach Graves shared the news with the media on Friday about the season ending injury for his All American forward. Alleyne was having a spectacular career at Oregon where she finished with 92 career double-doubles, landing her at second in the NCAA. Further, she stands third in rebounds with 1,712.

She racked up more accolades in not just Oregon history, but the Pac-12 as well, with single game, single season and career rebounding records. To add onto her double-doubles, she the conference's and university's single-season and career double-doubles leader.

In her 120 games as a Duck, Alleyne scored 2,151 points landing her at second on the all time Oregon list and in the Pac-12 number 10.

Alleyne has joined the likes of Chiney Ogwumike and Cheryl Miller and six other players--making her the 10th player in NCAA women's basketball to score at least 2,000 points and have at least 1,500 rebounds.

Since joining the Ducks, she has made her name well known earning awards every year since her freshman year with, Pac-12 Freshman of the year by the media, honorable mention All-American honors, and third team All American in her junior year. While the season isn't over for the team, there is no question she will receive more awards to add to her list of accomplishments.

Alleyne has started every game she has played in from her sophomore to senior year, plus 26 her freshman year. The Ducks final games against California and Stanford will be the first she has ever missed.

While this is a heart breaking injury for any player, the pain deepens when it happens for a senior on her way to the next level. Coach Graves shared with the media, "With her strong faith and work ethic, however, I know she will recover and go on to a long and successful professional career.”
