Women’s basketball prepare for undefeated Texas Tech

The Ole Miss women’s basketball team will battle undefeated Texas Tech today in Lubbock, Texas.

The Rebels suffered a heartbreaking loss when freshman Sarah Dumitrescu tore her ACL during the first quarter of the match against Sam Houston State on Nov. 26.

Dumitrescu, a native of Romania and a four-star recruit from IMG Academy, will be out for the rest of the season. However, her impact has not been unnoticed.

Entering that match as the top rebounder for the Rebels, averaging 7.8 boards per game, Dumitrescu was ranked 13th in SEC rankings. Before her injury, she already had five boards in the first quarter.
