Mississippi State's Ramani Parker will miss the remainder of the season with a left knee injury she suffered in the Bulldogs' win over Southeastern Louisiana on Friday.
Coach Sam Purcell confirmed the season-ending injury following the team's 87-26 win over New Orleans on Wednesday.
Parker, who followed Purcell to Mississippi State from Louisville after the 2021-22 season, averaged 4.8 points per game last season. She scored six points and had nine rebounds in the season-opener against Alcorn State.
Parker's injury is expected to lead to more playing time for Nyayongah Gony and Quanirah Montague behind All-SEC center Jessika Carter, according to the Clarion Ledger. Gony had five points and three rebounds against New Orleans, while Montague had seven points and nine rebounds.
