Foggie out 7-10 days

Feb. 13, 2013

NASHVILLE -- Vanderbilt junior guard Christina Foggie will be out for the next seven to 10 days, following a knee injury sustained on Sunday, February 10, versus Kentucky. Foggie, who becomes the third projected starter for Vanderbilt to miss time with injury this season, will be evaluated again after that period to determine whether or not she will return this season.

The Mount Laurel, N.J., native is currently second on the team in scoring at 15.7 points per game. She is also averaging 3.8 rebounds, 3.0 assists and a team-best 1.8 steals per outing. Foggie led the Southeastern Conference in scoring as a sophomore, posting 17.7 points per contest and earning First Team All-SEC honors.

In addition to Foggie, sophomore guard Kady Schrann is currently day-to-day with an ankle injury. She did not see action against Kentucky due to the ankle and has not played more than 13 minutes in a game since January 24. Schrann has started 17 games on the season, averaging 6.7 points per outing. She was selected to the SEC All-Freshman team last year after starting 27 games.

Along with Foggie and Schrann, Vanderbilt has been without redshirt junior center Stephanie Holzer all season. Holzer sustained a knee injury in the team's exhibition game on November 3. She was the SEC's Sixth Woman of the Year in 2011 before receiving All-SEC Honorable Mention recognition last season.

Vanderbilt entered this season returning 97.6% of its scoring, but the trio of Foggie, Schrann and Holzer accounted for nearly half that number (49.4%).

In addition to those losses, redshirt sophomore center Clair Watkins was lost for the season to a knee injury prior to the Tennessee contest on January 24.

The Commodores return to action on Thursday, February 14, when they host Missouri. Tipoff at Memorial Gym is set for 7:00 p.m.
