Here's the word on Hampton's Tate-DeFreitas and her knee

We'll make this brief. Hampton coach David Six confirmed that Malia Tate-DeFreitas tore the ACL and meniscus in her right knee in Saturday's victory over Delaware State.

"She's very upset," he said.

The injury is a devastating end to a college career that included twice being named MEAC Player of the Year and earning conference Rookie of the Year honors as a freshman. Tate-DeFreitas' 2,214 career points are the most of any Hampton player since the school became Division I. She was 96 points shy of breaking the league's all-time scoring record.

Among active players, Tate-DeFreitas 2,214 points ranks fourth and her 256 career steals rank fifth in the NCAA.
