After sitting out the 2012-13 season recovering from hip surgery, Gerson returned to the court for her delayed senior season, averaging 2.6 steals per game, which ranked 25th in the nation and second in the ACC. Gerson helped lead the Cavaliers post a +4.7 turnover margin, ranking 22nd in the country and the second-best mark in the ACC.
