Norman's King awaits surgery on knee; will miss track season
Norman girls basketball standout Kamra King will have to undergo surgery on her right knee after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in the Class 6A state championship game Saturday. However, a date has yet to be determined for the operation.
“They can’t do the surgery right now because my knee is too swollen,” said the junior point guard. “I’ll do physical therapy until the swelling goes down and then have it done.”
The injury will require six months rehabilitation and will keep King from competing in track and summer AAU basketball. While missing out on the AAU season will cost King some recruiting exposure, she’s already on the radar of numerous colleges. And her state tournament performance will likely increase interest — King scored 33 points in the semifinals the day before her injury.
“I’ve already talked to some schools,” she said. “And I’ve got my whole senior season to go, so things will work out.”
