IU women lose Chaplin for season

The Indiana women’s basketball team sent out a release this evening announcing that 6-foot-4 center Sasha Chaplin will miss the remainder of this season due to injury.

Chaplin’s career with the Hoosiers has been injury-plagued to say the least. She went down with a torn ACL just eight games into her freshman season, taking a redshirt year. Last year, Chaplin missed 10 games midseason with a stress fracture-type injury in her leg/foot. The same kind of injury popped up in the exhibition opener this year, and was termed a toe injury by the team — again a stress fracture-related issue.

She returned to play on Dec. 18 at Florida International before being hurt last Tuesday in the second half of a game at Florida Gulf Coast. Here’s the entire release:

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Indiana redshirt sophomore Sasha Chaplin will miss the remainder of the 2010-11 women’s basketball season due to suffering a knee injury at Florida Gulf Coast on Dec. 21.

The St. Petersburg, Fla., native missed the first 10 games of the season due to a toe injury before returning in Indiana’s win over Florida International on Dec. 18, scoring five points and pulling down eight rebounds. Against FGCU, Chaplin had netted nine points with three boards before suffering this recent setback.


  1. I do not know if this is the same knee on which she tore the ACL as a freshman, but it is a knee injury and not related to the previous stress fracture issues. Although it might be fair to wonder if those injuries caused her to put extra stress on the knee.
