Quick Takes: Injury impacts

Dave2015Injuries are an unfortunate byproduct of sports.  College hoops is no exception.  Injuries take a toll on both the player and his team.  Arizona’s Allonzo Trier left Monday’s game against North Dakota State with what was deemed a bruised knee; let’s hope that’s all it is.  Texas is currently without leading scorer Andrew Jones (wrist); the Longhorns barely escaped Tennessee State.  We also learned that Texas AM will be without guard Admon Gilder for two or three weeks with a knee injury.  These and other situations will be monitored by the Selection Committee.

Additional Quick Takes ...

  • After upsetting Notre Dame on Saturday, Indiana absorbed a 20-point home loss to Fort Wayne.  It’s the Hoosiers second 20-plus point home defeat; they opened the Archie Miller era with a lopsided loss to Indiana State.  One step forward, two steps back.
  • Marcus Fosters put up 32 points as Creighton held off UT-Arlington.
  • Texas Southern is now 0-12 against the nation’s No. 2 schedule. The Tigers visit BYU on Saturday before their home opener against Southern on January 1.  Nothing like a 13-game road trip to start your season.  Odd note?  I’ll still take the Tigers to represent the SWAC in March.
  • Wake Forest survived a squeaker against Coastal Carolina.
  • And SMU controlled its game against Boise State.  The visiting Broncos came in with a 10-1 mark; so a good showing for the Ponies.

Enjoy your Tuesday night hoops!
