DeMuth tore knee ligament in first practice

10/18/2004 - Indiana Hoosiers

INDIANAPOLIS -- Leading scorer and rebounder Jenny DeMuth
will miss all of the Indiana women's basketball team's season with
a torn knee ligament.

DeMuth injured her left knee early Saturday, just minutes after
Indiana began its season-opening Midnight Madness practice, the
team said Monday.

She was hurt when she tried to set herself on defense but her
left leg slipped out from underneath her.

DeMuth, a senior, was the only woman in the Big Ten to finish in
the top five in both scoring and rebounding last season, averaging
18.3 points and 7.7 rebounds. She was an all-conference pick last
season.

DeMuth would be eligible to redshirt and return to the Hoosiers
next season.
