Mizzou women’s basketball senior forward Jordan Frericks sustained a torn anterior cruciate ligament to her right knee during a preseason workout. Frericks will be sidelined for the entire 2016-17 season following surgery, maintaining a year of eligibility. She plans to return for her redshirt senior season in 2017-18.
“Jordan is an incredible leader and a fierce competitor and as she begins her rehab and recovery, our program will persevere together as a family and support her along the way,” head coach Robin Pingeton said. “We know she will bounce back in the face of adversity and that she’ll return from the injury stronger, on and off the court. I have no doubt she will continue to be an important leader for our team this season and beyond.”
