Bison guard Linz forced to retire

FARGO – North Dakota State senior guard Hannah Linz has experienced a recurrence of Hodgkin’s lymphoma and will have to end her women’s basketball career, according to a news release by NDSU on Thursday night.

Linz was originally diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2010 following her freshman season.

“We have witnessed first-hand Hannah’s fight to beat it the first time and see this setback as nothing different in her approach to win the battle with cancer this time,” said Bison head coach Carolyn DeHoff. “We ask that you keep her in your thoughts and prayers and respect Hannah’s privacy at this time.”
