Vanderbilt C Holzer ends career due to injuries

Posted:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Vanderbilt center Stephanie Holzer has decided to quit playing basketball and forego her remaining eligibility because of repeated leg injuries.

Coach Melanie Balcomb announced Holzer's decision Tuesday.

Holzer missed two seasons, including last year, after she dislocated her left knee cap and tore several ligaments when undercut going for a rebound in an exhibition last November. That led to her ninth surgery on her legs, the first on her left. She broke her left foot in May during her recovery.

The 6-foot-4 Holzer averaged 11 points and 6.8 rebounds in 61 games, and shot 54.8% in her career. Her last game was against Duke in the second round of the 2012 NCAA tournament.

School officials also announced that reserves Maggie Morrison and Clair Watkins have transferred to other universities.
