ATHENS — Ge­or­gia se­nior Re­becca Rowsey will miss the rest of the sea­son due to com­pli­ca­tions from an old knee in­jury.

Rowsey missed the 200506 sea­son af­ter tear­ing the an­te­rior cru­ci­ate lig­a­ment in his right knee. She will have surgery on Thurs­day to re­lieve prob­lems caused by de­te­ri­o­rat­ing car­ti­lage in the knee.

Rowsey, a 6-foot-3 for­ward from Henderson, Tenn., started 63 of her first 100 games at Ge­or­gia but has seen her play­ing time re­duced while av­er­ag­ing 2.0 points and 2.0 re­bounds in about nine min­utes per game this sea­son for Ge­or­gia.

Rowsey is a mem­ber of the Univer­sity of Ge­or­gia’s hon­ors pro­gram with a grade point av­er­age over 3.7. She is on sched­ule to earn de­grees in bi­ol­ogy and re­li­gion this spring and plans to en­roll at the Univer­sity of Ten­nessee’s med­i­cal school in Mem­phis in the fall.
