CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (UI Release) - University of Illinois head coach Matt Bollant announced Tuesday the medical disqualifications of redshirt-junior Kersten Magrum (Mokena, Ill./Lincoln-Way East HS) and sophomore Kierra Morris (Chicago, Ill./Morgan Park Academy) because of career-ending injuries. Magrum suffered the fourth concussion of her career earlier this season and Morris' career was cut short by chronic pain from a left knee injury she suffered in 2011-12.
Magrum appeared in 11 games this season, starting seven. She averaged 5.4 points per game, 4.1 rebounds per game and 21.0 minutes per game. In her career, she averaged 6.5 points, 3.2 rebounds and 19.6 minutes per game in 66 contests with 39 starts. Her best season came in 2011-12, when she averaged 11.4 points and 5.7 rebounds per game while starting 17 of 21 contests she appeared in. Morris played in one game in her career, seeing three minutes of action against Bollant's Green Bay team in the San Juan Shootout on Nov. 24, 2011.
