Jordan Horston Injury
Jordan Horston got her elbow, shouting in torment after hitting the floor for a free ball.
The deficiency of the Tennessee Lady Vols’ driving scorer made a 74-64 misfortune at Alabama on Thursday much more dreadful, as Houston left the court with a cast to her left side arm and didn’t return. Tennessee mentor Kellie Harper didn’t have an update after the game aside from that she accepted Horston went to get x-beams right away.
The No. 8 Lady Vols (21-5, 10-3 SEC) made a late push as of now, going on an 8-0 hurry to bring the game inside 12 focuses and compelling Alabama (13-11, 4-9) into nine turnovers in the fourth. Tennessee outscored Alabama 19-11 after being outscored each of the three of the past quarters. Yet, losing Houston with 1:44 left was the nail in the casket for the evening – she scored 12 focuses before the injury and is averaging 16.4 focuses, 9.6 bounce back and 3.9 helps per game this season.
“How we’ll request that they treat the same thing we’ve done consistently,” Harper said of conceivably losing Houston. “You simply need to observe flexibility, you need to track down durability. I think schematically we’ll need to check out our blueprints … They should appear to be unique. We depend on her for so much – on the off chance that she’s not out there, it should appear to be unique.”
Tamari Key drove the Lady Vols with a twofold (20 focuses, 13 bounce back) in the misfortune. It was the third SEC loss of the period for Tennessee, all of which have been out and about on Thursdays.
