Texas standout senior Nneka Enemkpali will miss the rest of the season after tearing a ligament in her left knee during a loss at Baylor.
The 6-1 forward tore her anterior cruciate ligament in the 75-58 setback.
The injury is a significant blow for the No. 8 Longhorns, who have lost three of their last four games after rising as high as No. 3 with a 13-0 start. The 6-foot-1 Enemkpali leads the Longhorns in scoring, averaging 12.4 points, and was the top rebounder in the Big 12 at 10.6 per game.
