Howell to have surgery January 7
The diagnosis was a torn ACL, and surgery has been set for January 7th in Indianapolis. Dr. Shelbourne will perform the procedure with hope to allow Jodi to restart athletics in early summer.
In the meantime, the state leading scorer title for the 2003-04 season now has no favorite. Howell was averaging 31 points before her injury, which would have placed her at the top of her peers.
