More than a month after injuring her right knee on St. John’s on Feb. 2, UConn sophomore guard Brianna Banks finally had her surgery to epair a torn anterior cruciate ligament on Thursday at the University of Connecticut Health Center.
The procedure was performed by Dr. Robert Arciero and Banks is expected to be ready for the start of the 2013-14 season. She will have two years of eligibility remaining.
“I am very pleased that the procedure on Brianna’s knee was a success,” Geno Auriemma said. “I know she will work extremely hard during the rehabilitation process and look forward to her being back on the floor next season.”
