Goodin-Rogers completed treatment, expected to play

Freshman forward Kyvin Goodin-Rogers, who missed this season after a pulmonary embolism was discovered in her lungs in October, has completed her six-month treatment and is expected to make a full recovery, UK confirmed Thursday.

Goodin-Rogers tweeted on Wednesday that she felt “good to be released and actually playing.”

The 6-foot-1 forward was a four-year All-State selection at Marion County where she had 2,401 career points, 1,663 rebounds and 463 blocked shots.

Along with UK teammate Makayla Epps, Goodin-Rogers was a standout on the undefeated Knights team that won the 2013 Sweet Sixteen title.

“We plan to have her fully participating with the team when they resume workouts this summer,” UK spokesman Susan Lax said.
