Iowa's Jade Rogers out for season

Associated Press

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Iowa sophomore forward Jade Rogers will miss all of the upcoming season to repair her left knee.

The Hawkeyes say Rogers will have surgery Thursday to realign her left leg. Rogers tore her anterior cruciate ligament in high school and has had issues with her knee while at Iowa.

Rogers had 21 points and 22 rebounds in 13 games last season.

Iowa coach Lisa Bluder says the surgery will give Rogers a chance to return to basketball and improve the quality of her life after she's done playing.
