ky women bb kyvinLEXINGTON, Ky. (10/30/13) – University of Kentucky freshman forward Kyvin Goodin-Rogers will miss the 2013-14 season after being diagnosed with a pulmonary embolism on Monday. Tests conducted at the Albert B. Chandler Hospital confirmed the blood clot in her lung that she will not play this season.
 
“This condition requires her to be on blood thinners for several months, therefore she will not be available to play this season,” UK Hoops head coach Matthew Mitchell said. “She came to our senior athletic trainer, Courtney Jones, after suffering from sharp pains in her chest on Monday. Kyvin’s health is our main concern right now. We are confident we’ll move forward in a positive direction with this challenge.”
 
Goodin-Rogers, 18, was expected to be a key factor in the front court for the No. 8 Wildcats. The Lebanon, Ky., native was ranked as the nation's 19th-best forward by ESPN.com after averaging 12.1 points, 7.8 rebounds, 3.1 steals and 2.4 blocks per game as a senior at Marion County High School last season. She finished her prep career with 2,401 points, 1,663 rebounds and 463 blocks, ranking ninth all-time in rebounds and seventh in blocks. She was a finalist for the 2013 Kentucky Miss Basketball Award and helped lead the Lady Knights to a perfect 39-0 record in 2013 and Marion County’s first state tournament title in eight appearances.
