Stanford women lose freshman guard to injury


Stanford freshman guard Jasmine Camp will miss the rest of the 2011-12 women's basketball season due to a stress fracture in her left foot, Cardinal head coach Tara VanDerveer announced Wednesday after practice.

Camp played in the first eight games of the season, starting four, until being sidelined following a 85-66 win over Princeton on Dec. 17.

Camp averaged 3.6 points and 2.13 assists over 14.1 minutes per game this season. She scored a season-high 14 points on 5-of-9 shooting (3-for-4 on 3-pointers) at Connecticut back on Nov. 21.

Camp will undergo surgery in early January and aims to return for the 2012-13 season.


Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck finished second to Baylor's Robert Griffin III in the voting for the Associated Press Player of the Year.

Elsewhere, Stanford grad Tom Williams resigned his position as Yale's head coach amid an investigation into whether he lied on his resume about being a candidate for a Rhodes Scholarship while he was a student at Stanford.
