Senior Megan Mahoney, a four-year starter for Kansas State, suffered a ruptured Achilles' tendon on March 12 in the Big 12 final against Baylor and will not play in the NCAA Tournament.

Mahoney ends her college career as the Wildcats' career assists leader (589), ranks 12th all-time in scoring (1,307) and fourth all-time in career rebounding (804). The 6-foot guard is a two-time All-Big 12 honorable mention selection (2004 and 2005) and received first-team All-Big 12 honors in 2003.

Mahoney, who will undergo surgery next week, also holds the school record for most consecutive games started and played (129). She had played and started every game of her career since her freshman campaign in 2001-02.

Last season, Mahoney became only the second Wildcat and fourth player in Big 12 history to record a triple-double, tallying 12 points, 10 rebounds and 12 assists against Saint Louis on Dec. 6, 2003.
