ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- University of Michigan women's basketball head coach Kim Barnes Arico announced on Tuesday (Nov. 6) that senior/junior forward Kendra Seto (Oshawa, Ont./Eastdale C.V.I) will miss the 2012-13 after suffering a knee injury during practice.
Seto tore the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in her right knee during practice on Nov. 1. She will undergo surgery to repair the ligament and miss the entire season. Seto transferred to Michigan from Vermont and played her first season as Wolverine last year, appearing in 27 games. She averaged 1.5 points and 1.4 rebounds in 8.3 minutes per game.
Seto is the third Wolverine to suffer a season-ending injury this year, joining freshman forward Kelsey Mitchell (Detroit, Mich./Inkster) and junior forward Val Driscoll (Stoughton, Mass./Archbishop Williams), who are also out for the season with knee injuries.
The Wolverines officially kick off the Barnes Arico era and the 2012-13 season on Friday (Nov. 9) when they host Detroit at 6 p.m. as part of a doubleheader with the men's team. Fans with a ticket to the men's game can use that for free admission to the women's contest.
