St. John’s Women’s Basketball head coach Joe Tartamella announced on Wednesday that senior guard Qadashah Hoppie will miss the remainder of the 2020-21 campaign after suffering a shoulder injury that will require season-ending surgery.
“Q has fought valiantly to be on the floor this year and has made incredible contributions while battling through adversity,” Tartamella said. “She gives her all every time she steps on to the court. She has a tremendous work ethic and an incredible basketball mind. While she won’t be able to physically play with us over the remainder of the season, I know she will continue to fill her role as a leader off the court for our program.”
Hoppie saw action in eight games this season for the Red Storm, averaging 18.0 points per contest. The senior guard converted at a 40 percent shooting from the floor, including a 40.3 percent mark from beyond the arc. The Staten Island native was nearly perfect from the free-throw line this year, knocking down 90.5 percent of her tries.
Through 104 career games, Hoppie is currently the active leading scorer in the BIG EAST with 1,323 points and sits inside the top-50 in all of Division I. Earlier this year, the 5-foot-9 guard moved into second on the Red Storm’s all-time list for 3-pointers made with 185.
The Johnnies return to action this afternoon, as the Red Storm takes on Georgetown at 4 p.m. inside McDonough Arena.
