Mara Braun suffered a foot injury in the Gophers 73-68 loss to Illinois. She will require foot surgery and is likely done for the season.
Braun remains the Gophers’ best player this season, averaging almost 18 points a game and shooting 37% from distance.
Minnesota already had a tenuous shot at the NCAA Tournament and will need to win a fair number of games the rest of the season as underdogs. We wish her the best and for an extremely quick and painless recovery process.
