redshirt sophomore forward Amber Gray to play basketball with the
Gray underwent brain surgery last July to clip a brain aneurysm
that had hemorrhaged and caused a stroke. She sat out the entire
2009-10 season as she continued her recovery.

The 6-foot-1 Gray played in 27 games as a freshman in 2008-09,
averaging 2.7 points and 1.9 rebounds in 7.6 minutes per contest.
