Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones said Monday that his girlfriend, OU women’s basketball guard Whitney Hand, is planning to make her season debut Sunday at TCU.
Hand has missed the entire season after undergoing offseason knee surgery to repair an ACL tear. The same injury also sat her all but the first five games of last season.
Hand, the Big 12 Freshman of the Year two seasons ago, was originally scheduled to return in February. But she recovered ahead of schedule, and now will get to play in her native Fort Worth.
Said Jones: “She gets to go back to her hometown and do it there, which is really cool.”
