South Carolina All-American Wilson out vs. Tennessee
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — South Carolina All-American forward A’ja Wilson is missing the ninth-ranked Gamecocks’ game against No. 6 Tennessee on Sunday with a sprained right ankle.
The 6-foot-5 Wilson hurt herself in the final minute of South Carolina’s 71-63 win over Auburn on Thursday night when she came down on someone’s foot. She has not practiced since then, getting treatment for the injury.
Wilson came out during pregame with a pink cast on her foot and used a scooter that elevated her leg to move around. That didn’t stop Wilson from dancing around in her chair with teammates as they prepared to face the Lady Vols.
Wilson, a senior, is the two-time defending Southeastern Conference player of the year. She leads the SEC and is third nationally in scoring at 23.2 points.
