Notre Dame's Achonwa out for Final Four with torn ACL

  Natalie Achonwa left the game late in the second half of Monday's regional final against Baylor.

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Notre Dame says forward Natalie Achonwa sustained a knee injury in the regional semifinal against Baylor and won't be able to play for the Fighting Irish in the Final Four.

The school said Tuesday that Achonwa, a 6-3 forward, suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in her left knee in Monday night's 88-69 win. Achonwa caught a pass in the paint from Kayla McBride with just under five minutes left in the game and was bumped from behind by Chardonae Fuqua. She yelled as she fell to the ground and grabbed her left knee.

Notre Dame head coach Muffet McGraw said in a statement that while Achonwa won't play in the Final Four, "her voice will be heard loud and clear in the locker room, on the bench and in the huddle."
