Maryland Loses Mincy To Torn ACL

Maryland junior guard Laurin Mincy will miss the rest of the season due to a torn anterior cruciate ligament in her right knee, the university announced today. She sustained the injury early in the second half of Wednesday’s 90-71 win at No. 21 Nebraska.

Mincy, who tore the ACL in her left knee and missed her senior season at University High in Newark, N.J. in 2009-10, had a season-high 16 points in 23 minutes against the Cornhuskers.

The Terrapins (4-1) previously lost sophomore starting point guard Brene Moseley to a torn ACL in the left knee Oct. 21. Maryland will meet No. 2 UConn (6-0) in the Jimmy V Classic at the XL Center Monday night.

UConn Class of 2014 target Recee Caldwell has made an oral commitment to UCLA.
