Maryland women’s basketball point guard Channise Lewis suffered a torn ACL and meniscus against Michigan State, the team confirmed Wednesday.

The redshirt junior, averaging 5.1 points and 3.4 assists per game, won’t see action again in 2020-21. This is the second year that Lewis has had her season ended due to a knee injury.

After stepping into a starting role during her freshman campaign, Lewis stood out as one of the best young scoring facilitators in the nation. A solid sophomore season proved she could play among the best in the Big Ten, but a torn lateral meniscus in her left knee left the Miami native sitting out for the entire 2019-20 season.

Roughly 15 months removed from that injury, Lewis is sidelined again for the remainder of the season.

“We are extremely disappointed and saddened to hear the news,” women’s basketball head coach Brenda Frese said on Wednesday. “We’ll be here for Channise every step of the way.”

The No. 9 Terps are back in action tonight at Minnesota at 6 pm ET on Big Ten Network. The game preview can be found here.
