The news out of Russia is the type one does not want to hear when you have an important talent suffer an injury for another club. The latest to fall is Epiphanny Prince, who now finds she has time to pursue her degree completion at Rutgers since she tore her anterior cruciate ligament and two in her right lateral meniscus.

The star shooting guard that was acquired by the New York Liberty in the blockbuster trade for Cappie Pondexter puts New York back in the position where they started the 2015 season, incomplete. Prince underwent her surgery at the Hospital for Special Surgery yesterday morning. A place that teammate Essence Carson knows well as it took three years to get back to her pre-injury form.

“Injury is always difficult and the last few weeks have not been easy,” Prince explained. “I miss basketball and being on the floor competing, but I am committed to doing everything I can to get healthy as soon as possible.”

The injury happened in a November 11 match against Villeneuve in a Euroleague game for her club Dynamo Kursk. The New York Liberty and Dynamo Kursk players have made their support known and Prince knows that the momentum the Liberty built from a very successful season last year has taken a hit.
