She will undergo a hip labral repair.

The Saints were already the victim of bad luck when sophomore point guard Brianna Logan’s season tore her ACL minutes into the first official practice. It was previously announced that Logan would miss this season as well.

“As a coach, I really feel for Kelsey,” said head coach Ali Jaques. “She was our most improved player last season and was playing her best basketball in February and March. As frustrating as it is, I know that our team will persevere and Kelsey will work hard through her surgery and rehab to come back stronger than ever.”

Booth appeared in all 31 games during her junior season for the Saints and made her first four collegiate starts. She averaged 7.4 points and 4.0 rebounds in 18.5 minutes and led the Saints in threes (41), blocks (22) and free-throw percentage (.914).
