MADISON (WKOW) -

The Badgers women's basketball team has suffered a loss before the season even begins. Head coach Bobbie Kelsey announcing that junior forward Malayna Johnson will miss the season after tearing her ACL.

"It is extremely sad that we will not have Malayna on the court for us this season,” Kelsey said. “She made such tremendous improvements and was really coming into her own before tearing her ACL.  Having experienced losing several players to this devastating injury in our program during my tenure here, we are crushed that Malayna will have to sit out the year."

Johnson averaged four points per game last season. She will have two seasons of eligibility left after redshirting this season.
