Rogowski to Miss the Rest of the Season

CHICAGO – DePaul guard Megan Rogowski will miss the remainder of the 2014-15 season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). The Blue Demon senior suffered the injury at Villanova on Jan. 2, 2015.

"Megan has been a mainstay in our DePaul backcourt since her freshman year and has worked to make herself one of the leading 3-point shooters in the nation.”

“In that process she has also grown into being a total and complete guard. Megan's intelligence for the game and competitiveness will be as missed as much as her ability to space the floor with her 3-point shooting," said head coach Doug Bruno.

A three-point sharp shooter, Rogowski has tallied 243 triples which is the third most all-time at DePaul. Her 621 3-point field goal attempts rank fourth, while her .391 (243-for-621) percentage from behind the arc is also fourth all time.

This season, Rogowski’s .424 3-point field goal percentage ranks 41st in Division I while her 2.8 3-pointers per game is 30th.

Last season (2013-14), Rogowski’s 114 3-pointers set a new DePaul single-season record while it also ranked 20th all-time in the NCAA for teams that qualified for the NCAA Tournament.

A two-year starter and 2014-15 unanimous preseason All-BIG EAST Conference selection, Rogowski appeared in 108 games with 50 starts.

With 1,144 career points, the Prospect Heights, Ill. native is one of DePaul’s 31, 1,000-point scorers. Rogowski hit the millennium mark this season when she scored 17 points against New Mexico on Nov. 16.

Along with being ranked in DePaul’s career and single-season record books, Rogowski also holds several single-game records. She knocked down eight 3-pointers against Providence on Jan. 8, 2014 which tied the school record for 3-pointers in a game and set a new standard at McGrath-Phillips Arena. Her 5-of-6 effort against Butler on Feb. 22, 2014 tied a McGrath-Phillips Arena record for 3-point field goal percentage.

Rogowski was a 2013-14 All-BIG EAST honorable mention performer and was named to the league’s Weekly Honor Roll on four occasions.

"One of the only negative aspects of coaching is when any player, including opposing players, are injured,” Bruno added.

“The entire DePaul program is devastated by Megan's injury and while we express total team empathy for Megan's unfortunate circumstance, we also know that every team in America must deal with injuries. It will now be up to the remainder of our team to step up and fill the huge void left by Megan Rogowski's season ending injury."
