She has yet to return to the court following ACL surgery, but already Lindsay Wisdom-Hylton is garnering accolades.
Wisdom-Hylton, a Neuqua Valley graduate, found out this morning she was named to the preseason All-Big Ten team. The fifth-year senior sat out all last season after being named the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year as a junior in 2006-07.
She was in town Sunday for a Big Ten Media Day event at the Marriott O'Hare. It was a business trip, though. She didn't have time to visit any friends or family. Wisdom-Hylton and teammae FahKara Malone flew up from Purdue in the morning on a charter flight with coach Sharon Versyp and Sara White, Purdue women's basketball sports information director. The group was back on the plane headed home to West Lafayette, Ind., in the early afternoon.
