Yet, it was almost like slow motion when it happened. I actually screamed "Oh No" before she even hit the floor.The best I can replay it in my mind, she was up in the air and fell backward with her leg from the hip down in a position nature never intended with it more or less folded up underneath when her she fell on it with the full force of her body. My first thought given the obvious amount of pain and position of leg when she fell was that she had to fracture something (or God forbid -- more than one something.) I also thought of Lattimore and the possibility of a dislocated knee and all the other knee related injuries.No matter what was or was not fractured, I can tell you that one thing that was definitely broken == that was my heart. I could hardly stand to see this girl go down like that after all the hard work and disappointments she has had to endure to come back from her injuries to the point of being a star on this team and in this league.Other teams may have given up on her, but she never gave up on herself. I was so proud for her last year when in the post game interviews she responded proudly and emotionally when the number of minutes she played was mentioned favorably. I seem to remember one in particular when you could see the emotion in her face when she said how satisfying it was to her because at one point she had been told she probably would never to be able to physically play more than a limited number minutes in a Division One game.Steph, speaking for we Vandy fans, know that we love you, are hurting with you tonight, and that you have earned a huge space in our heart.
