Virginia's China Crosby out for season with ACL tear

Sadly, it's now official - Virginia point guard China Crosby will miss the rest of the season with another ACL injury to her left knee.

It's the latest in a series of setbacks for the Cavaliers junior, a former McDonald's All-American and the jewel of the Cavaliers' 2009 recruiting class. As a freshman, Crosby made it through only 13 games before tearing her left knee ACL the first time on Jan. 2 at Colorado. In last year's season opener at Hofstra, Crosby sprained her left knee and suffered a bone bruise that kept her out for nine games. And this year, Crosby started Virginia's first 12 games, then went down 35 seconds into the Cavaliers game against JMU on Dec. 20.

The school announced that Crosby (7.9 ppg,, 2.3 apg) underwent surgery Wednesday. She will have one year of eligibility remaining.
