Why are torn ACLs happening so frequently to Dallas-area girls basketball players?

...A SportsDay survey found that 28 Dallas-area girls basketball players tore their ACL this summer or school year. The list includes three of the top 20 recruits in the area in the Class of 2020 — Florida signee Jordyn Merritt of Plano, Harvard signee Harmoni Turner of Mansfield Legacy and SMU signee Jayla Brooks of Sachse....

...Girls who play high school and AAU basketball might play 80 games a year, including 20 to 25 in a single month (July), South Grand Prairie coach Brion Raven said. More athletes are playing year-round at an earlier age, starting at 9 or 10.

Horrifying and just getting worse all the time. How many adults have a financial interest in the year-round game?
