Knee injuries continue to plague the South Carolina as Lindsey Spann will be out for the remainder of the 2017-18 season, according to a team announcement released today.

The program will take a hard hit from the injury as Spann, a Penn State graduate transfer, was the team’s best three-point shooter. This, however, is not the team’s first detrimental injury of the season as they had already lost senior guard Bianca Cuevas-Moore with an ACL injury. Spann had also previously missed games this year from separate knee injuries.

In the seven games that Spann was healthy enough to play in (including two top-15 opponents), she certainly made an impact. Spann led the SEC in three-point percentage (.550) and was second in the league for made triples per game (3.1).

She is ending her South Carolina career averaging 10.3 points per game with a shooting percentage of 46.2 and 45.2 percent shooting accuracy from beyond the arc.
