Northland High School senior girls basketball Symone Denham is out for the season after going down with a knee injury during her team's 45-37 win over Africentric on Feb. 11.

According to coach Dean Washington, Denham will have "major reconstruction" surgery on Feb. 29 after it was determined that she had a torn anterior cruciate ligament and a medial collateral ligament injury.

Denham, who was averaging 15 points for a Vikings team that beat Briggs 92-14 on Feb. 18 to improve to 19-1, is a University of Michigan recruit and a member of the 2011 ThisWeek Super 12.

In Denham's absence, senior Raven Bryant-Williams is likely to start. Sophomore Brooklyn Peterson and freshmen Ariel Skipper and Armani Skipper also should see increased playing time, Washington said.
