Mitchell broke a bone in her foot during Michigan's preseason workouts and had surgery to repair the injury on Monday. This is sad news for Mitchell, who missed the 2012-13 season after tearing her anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in summer workouts. She was able to play in Michigan's foreign tour in August, and averaged 9.3 points and 10.0 rebounds in U-M's three games.
"You feel for her because she worked so hard to get healthy after tearing her ACL last year," said Barnes Arico. "She was going to really help us on the rebounding end this season. I know she will work just as hard this time around to get back on the court."
Michigan starts their 2013-14 season with an exhibition contest against Wayne State on November 1st at Cristler Center. Their first regular season game is against Bowling Green in New Rochelle, NY on November 8th.
