Women's basketball suffers key injury
Sophomore guard Jennifer Mossor suffered a broken finger in her left non-shooting hand in practice Sunday night and will miss at least 5-6 weeks.
Mossor, of Orlando, underwent surgery Tuesday morning and had two pins inserted. Ironically, she also missed the first two games of the regular season last year with a foot fracture.
"She has been one of our practice leaders, I have been so pleased with her since we started practice and the impact she's had on what the outlook of the team is,'' UF coach Amanda Butler said. "It is a loss for us right now, but it's also part of our game. It's one way that adversity presents itself to us. It's an opportunity as much as it is a loss for Jen. It's an opportunity for someone else. And it won't be one person, hopefully we will spread it out to all of our guards. We want to get her back as soon as possible, no question.''
