Taylor denied medical redshirt

SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Iowa women’s basketball head coach Lisa Bluder announced on Monday that freshman guard Theairra Taylor did not qualify for a medical-hardship redshirt.

The St. Paul, Minn., native tore her ACL in the Hawkeyes’ game against South Dakota State on Dec. 22, 2009. She made 10 appearances for the Hawkeyes, averaging 8.1 points and 4.9 rebounds per game.

According to NCAA rules, in order to qualify for a medical hardship, student-athletes may only participate in 30 percent of games played, with a maximum total being 30 games. So Taylor’s 10 games equaled 33.3 percent of Iowa’s season.

“This is very unfortunate news for Theairra,” Bluder said in a statement. “During the season, I was given incorrect information on the medical-hardship process. We had originally thought that playing more games would help Theairra get her redshirt, but that wasn’t the case. We are confident that Theairra will bounce back from this news and are still very excited to have her in a Hawkeye uniform for three more seasons.”
