Irish forward Mikayla Vaughn done for season after tearing ACL

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Notre Dame will be without freshman forward Mikayla Vaughn for the rest of the season due to a torn ACL in her left knee.

Vaughn suffered the injury during practice Tuesday and missed the No. 3 Irish's 83-63 win at No. 22 Michigan the following night. The school announced the extent of her injury Thursday.

Vaughn averaged 8.0 points, 4.3 rebounds and 13.2 minutes in six games for the Irish (7-0), who play top-ranked UConn (6-0) in Hartford, Connecticut, on Sunday.
