A. Mealing

ORLANDO, Fla. – UCF will be without senior guard Angelica Mealing for the remainder of the 2010-11 season with a knee injury, head coach Joi Williams announced.

Mealing, who has missed three of the Knights’ last five games, will undergo surgery following the season to repair the injured knee and will not return to the lineup in the meantime.

“Jelly has shown tremendous growth over the four years she's been with us and is very valuable to our basketball team,” Williams said. “We will miss her presence on the court, but she is committed to being there to encourage and support us down the stretch.”

Finishing her career with 327 career assists, Mealing ranks fourth all-time in program history, while 11th in steals with 140. As a sophomore, Mealing helped UCF claim the 2009 Conference USA Tournament Championship, scoring 10 points and adding four assists in the title game against Southern Miss.
