Stringfield tears ACL for second time


USF redshirt sophomore Shalethia Stringfield tore her ACL for the second time during her college career in the Bulls’ final game of the season.

During the WNIT semifinals, where USF lost to Rutgers 62-52, Stringfield crashed to the floor late in the game and was down for several minutes before being helped to the bench. A few days earlier against Mississippi State, in the quarterfinals, she scored 20 points.

USF has yet to confirm the injury, but Stringfield interacted over Twitter with friend and Gators’ women’s basketball player Antoinette Bannister, who said “Sad to hear that @phresh_kidd_lee tore her ACL again. Stay encouraged.”

Stringfield responded with a thank you, but there’s no timetable for a return.
