||Jasmine Cannady, junior guard for Sacramento State’s women’s basketball team, ruptured her left Achilles tendon on 27th January 2010 during practice. She had surgery the next day.
The 20-year-old woman was not the only player of the team who ended her season early. Junior guard Sami Field-Polisso and sophomore guard Alex White also went down with injuries. All three will miss the rest of this season.
The injuries have had a negative impact on the team's depth, but not their record. They had won seven games in a row, five of which came since Jasmine’s injury. “It is very hard for me to be away from the girls,” she said, but seeing the team's success makes up for it.
