Purdue sophomore Ashley Wilson undergoes second surgery
â€œAshley has worked very hard this summer with her rehab, so certainly sheâ€™s disappointed,â€ said head coach Sharon Versyp . â€œHowever, sheâ€™s a tough young lady with a tremendous work ethic who will make the best of the situation. Weâ€™re all supporting her 100 percent and we know that sheâ€™s getting the best care possible.â€
Wilson, from Wheeling, Ill., had her initial surgery on March 23, 2010, to assist the healing of a stress fracture that had been plaguing her for some time. She played in all 32 games last season and started six contests. She averaged 4.9 points and 4.1 rebounds while averaging 16.7 minutes per game. Wilson scored a season-high 16 points at Pepperdine and pulled down double-figure rebounds twice, including a season-high 11 at Virginia.
Wilson is expected to return in time for Big Ten Conference games.
