Confirming what many had feared, the Gonzaga University athletic department said Friday afternoon that guard Katie Campbell will miss the remainder of her senior season with an injury to her left knee.
The statement was issued without comment from Campbell or coach Lisa Fortier. No other details were provided.
Campbell, one of the leading 3-point shooters in Division I the past two seasons, was injured late in Saturday’s game against BYU.
Campbell landed awkwardly on her left leg as she was driving for a layup against BYU defender Kaylee Smiler.
Trainers carried Campbell off the court for treatment while the Zags went on to beat BYU 59-44.
Campbell, a native of Oxnard, California, led the Zags in her final game with 17 points – tying a career high – and a career-best five steals.
For the season, Campbell averaged 11 points and 3.6 rebounds while shooting 43.1% from beyond the 3-point arc.
She also had 42 assists and 38 steals.
Gonzaga, ranked 11th in the nation, is 23-1 overall and 12-0 in the West Coast Conference.
