Arrgh, former Stanford player and current Minnesota Lynx player (and favorite player of all time for C), Candice Wiggins is hurt! She had surgery to repair a small tear in the meniscus in her right knee. She is expected to be out for about four weeks. This is on top of the questionable status of Lynx star Seimone Augustus (underwent successful surgery to remove fibroids), and now the Lynx are not looking so good in going into training camp. Maybe it is a good thing Jayne Appel was not drafted by the Lynx. C and R thought maybe Candice got this injury in the Eurocup Championship, but she had this injury DURING the season where she was named Eurocup MVP and leading her team to the championship. Gritty performance. We wish Candice and Seimone a speedy recovery.
Speaking of Jayne Appel, do you need a Jayne fix? R does, as she is her favorite player. See and hear her talk about the first day of training camp. Her stress fracture is doing well, but her ankle is talking longer to heal. Go figure.
Still awaiting word from our junior bloggers about the awards ceremony-perhaps they couldn’t have their sleepover as planned! Meanwhile, check out the Stanford Fast Break Club’s take on the evening. They got some great candid shots of the players NOT in uniform.
