Junior was leading Pac-10 in 3-pointers

1/14/2005 - Oregon Ducks

EUGENE, Ore. -- Oregon's junior guard Chelsea Wagner is out
for the rest of the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament
in her left knee, the university said Friday.

Wagner, who leads the Pac-10 in 3-pointers and has started in
all 15 games this season, was injured in Thursday's win over
Washington.

She had scored six 3-pointers in the game before the injury
midway through the fourth quarter.

She was third in Ducks scoring with 8.8 points per game.

In July senior Kedzie Gunderson suffered a similar injury after
a non-basketball incident and senior Catherine Kraayeveld did it in
December of 2003 during practice.

Coach Bev Smith said Wagner should be back on the court in six
months.
