Natalie Achonwa out for Final Four with torn ACL


Notre Dame has confirmed that star forward Natalie Achonwa tore her ACL and will miss the Final Four.

"Nataliehas been an extremely valuable contributor to our success, not only this seasonbut throughout her career, and that won't change," Notre Dame head coach Muffet McGraw said. "While she may notbe in uniform, her voice will be heard loud and clear in the locker room, onthe bench and in the huddle. I know that our team is going to continue to feedoff her energy, passion and leadership as we head into the Final Four."

Achonwa had a solid outing in her final game in Purcell Pavilion, scoring 19 points and adding 11 rebounds. However, near the end of the second half she went down with a knee injury. As she limped off the court she screamed at her teammates to win the game.

The Irish went on to beat Baylor 88-69 Monday night.
