Yes.

Texas Christian University’s women’s basketball program forfeited on Jan. 17 two games against Kansas State and Iowa State, citing player injuries. 

“Due to the limited number of available student-athletes we currently have due to injuries, and in consultation with our medical team, it is simply not a safe environment for the student-athletes to compete right now,” TCU athletic director Jeremiah Donati said in a statement to 247Sports.

Point guard Jaden Owens and forward DaiJa Turner recently suffered season-ending injuries. Ten players took the court at the Horned Frogs’ Jan. 13 game against Houston. Turner’s need for left ankle surgery was announced four days later.
