Essence Carson to miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL

It turns out that the injury Liberty forward Essence Carson suffered in Friday’s game was a torn ACL, and she’s out for the rest of the season.

Especially considering she was having a break out year, it’s beyond sad.

Carson’s injury has dealt a blow to her team.

Today’s games……oddly, the two teams with major injured personnel won:

The Liberty defeated the Dream, 76-67.

The Sky got past the Silver Stars, 72-70. They were lead by none other than Elena Delle Donne and her 23 points. She’s looking like the Rookie of the Year so far.
