Penn State guard Teniya Page suffered a fracture/dislocation to her right ankle Thursday during an intrasquad scrimmage at the under-23 USA Basketball camp.

The camp is in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and USA Basketball said that Page was taken to Memorial Hospital. Page was treated at the hospital, and a timetable for her return is unknown. Penn State has declined to comment on the situation, sending media to USA Basketball’s statement.

“She has been released and will require an orthopedic evaluation to determine her follow-up care and treatment,” USA Basketball said in a statement.

Page, a junior, was one of the Lady Lions’ best players last season. She averaged 19.9 points per game, leading the team in scoring. Page led the Lady Lions to the third round of the WNIT last season, where they lost to Virginia Tech 64-55.

Not only is Page perhaps the best player on her team, but she is also one of the best in the country. She ranked No. 5 in scoring in the Big Ten, and she was also a consensus first-team All-Big Ten selection.

Along with that honor, Page was also given honorable mention on the All-America team from the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association.

Penn State’s season begins Nov. 10 when the Lady Lions will play against Siena at home.
