IOWA CITY, Iowa - Before and during her Hawkeye career, Theairra Taylor suffered three major knee injuries, stunting, but prolonging, her career.

Taylor's journey continues as an Iowa women's basketball player under Lisa Bluder, and she's recovered from her most recent injury to thrive with the Hawkeyes in 2012-13.

TV9's Chelsi McDonald has the story of the Hawkeyes' red-shirt junior guard, who has overcome three ACL injuries to be a key player on Iowa's team this year.
