The debut of much-ballyhooed Sandia guard Viané Cumber will be delayed a year. The freshman, who already has no fewer than five Division I offers, has torn her ACL and will not play a single minute for the defending state champions this season. Cumber will have surgery next month, Sandia coach Lee Kettig said.
Cumber’s offer from Arizona State is unique. ASU saw her in a team camp, then invited her back a few days later to an elite individual camp.
“I felt honored,” Cumber said. “When I went back, I was a little nervous.”
Cumber said Arizona State told her that they had never before offered a scholarship to someone so young. . . .
Tulane, Oregon, Auburn, Maryland, Pepperdine, Indiana and Villanova are among the other schools also looking closely at Cumber.
