Liz did her achilles which is what the above posts are referring to during a 2014 pre-world championships practice game - hence ruling her out of both the worlds campaign and the 14/15 WNBL season where she'd signed with Dandenong. We've got to remember these players are real people too and good on her for having other interests outside her basketball, after all her basketball career isn't going to last forever. I mean I don't necessarily agree with everything she's done, but it is her life in the end so what's it to us.
Yeah I agree, very very unfortunate for Madgen because she was playing very well over in Poland - she did it about a month back during their playoffs which I'd assume rules her out for all of the 17/18 season given it will end in Jan. Most of the coverage on it was in Polish though so that's probably why not many people know. I only found out after translating it - but I did see it mentioned in one of Boti's pieces recently.
