Sharon Goodman Suffers Torn ACL

IOWA CITY, Iowa — University of Iowa women’s basketball sophomore Sharon Goodman suffered a season-ending torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) of her right knee in practice. The announcement came Monday by P. Sue Beckwith head coach Lisa Bluder.

“We are sad to lose Sharon for the year and that she will have to undergo surgery to repair the ligament,” Bluder said. “I have complete faith in our medical care here at Iowa, and I know that Sharon will rehab hard after surgery and return to our team as strong as ever.

“Sharon was in the midst of a great off season and obviously would have contributed to her team on the court. Sharon is a great teammate and will still contribute to our team success, just in a different manner.”

Goodman, a Lime Springs, Iowa, native played in all 30 games last season, averaging 3.7 points, 2.1 rebounds, 1.6 assists, and 8.7 minutes.
