Tech's Kentrina Wilson To Miss Remainder of 2004-05 Season

Feb. 12, 2005

ATLANTA – Georgia Tech sophomore Kentrina Wilson will miss the remainder of the 2004-05 women’s basketball season after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament in her left knee during practice on Tuesday, February 8. The Deerfield Beach, Fla. native will undergo surgery to repair the knee on Thursday, February 17, 2005.

“It was a tremendous blow to our team and staff when we found out the day before our NC State game that Trina had torn her other ACL almost a year to the date of her first ACL injury,” said Georgia Tech head coach MaChelle Joseph. “I told the team that Trina is an epitome of what we want a Georgia Tech women’s basketball player to be like, both on and off the court.”

The guard/forward suffered the same injury to her right knee on February 9, 2004, and had returned to start eight games for the Yellow Jackets this season while averaging 5.7 points and 5.1 rebounds per game. She had also blocked 15 shots this season and tallied 18 steals through 20 games.

“Not only was it a blow to our spirit, but also to our substitution pattern,” said Joseph. “We will have to learn to adjust all over again while finding people to step up and replace her five points and five rebounds per game. We need our players to step up and help us persevere to win games going into this final stretch of the season.”

The Yellow Jackets are 13-8 overall and 4-6 in the ACC with five regular season games remaining.
