BOZEMAN, Mont. -- As the Lady Bobcat basketball team lost 65-90 to the Idaho Vandals on February 9, 2019, the news for the team seemed to worsen.
Bobcat leading scorer Claire Lundberg took a brutal hit during the team's contest against Northern Colorado on February 4th. On Monday, Montana State University announced that Lundberg will be out for the remainder of the season with an ACL tear that will require surgery.
The Seton Hall transfer was able to start in 21 games for the Bobcats. Although she will no longer play basketball in Worthington Arena, her contribution to the team was unmatched.
The Andover, Minnesota product averaged 17 points per game, three rebounds per game, 39 percent from the arc, 86 percent from the line, all while shooting 43 percent from the field. In addition, she was ranked second in the Big Sky Conference for free throw percentage, and was ranked number six in the league in total scoring.
Lundberg had double-figure scoring in 18 of MSU's 21 games (prior to injury), and in one of those games, a career high of 28 points.
