Oregon's Sedona Prince celebrates a turnover against Arizona during overtime in Eugene Saturday Jan. 15, 2022.

Sedona Prince’s career at Oregon is over.

The senior center suffered a torn ligament in her elbow that will require season-ending surgery, the school announced Friday morning. 

Prince, who graduated in June, also announced she will now focus on recovery before pursuing a professional career instead of applying for a medical exemption to get back her final season at Oregon.

“I’m heartbroken. I truly felt that this was the year I could showcase my work ethic and skills on the court, but also my self-growth and leadership ability,” Prince said in a statement released through the athletic department.

“I tried to push through the injury and be there for my team, but after extensive evaluation from the best doctors in the world and looking deep inside myself at my passions and goals, I know that I have to take care my elbow now in order to ensure long-term health and a sustained professional career.”
