Sorry if this info has been provided elsewhere, but I periodically follow UE long-distance and noticed in yesterday's box the ABSENCE of his name.

Boo has chronic knee issues that have kept him out of a few games this year.

Sadly Boo's knee issue has been acting up. I hear he’s having it reevaluated again by other doctors.

Keep us updated, as Boo's "D" & offensive penetration is what facilitates the SPACE on the perimeter.

Boo sees a doctor tomorrow. He's still in a lot of pain.

I heard the same thing. If he is done for the year, that means he has played his last game as an Ace.
I hope not, but he has his entire life ahead of him and he needs to be able to walk on both legs without a limp.

Marty said Boo was expected to practice today for the first time in a while, but is also going through some illness and did not practice.

He sounded confident Boo will be back, if not relatively soon, then this season.

Where would have Evansville be had they not signed Riley (or DC)??? I truly hope Boo gets back to health but very thankful and amazed on how well KG has played - most pleasant surprise for me this season.

KJ has really transitioned well in d1 basketball so far he's been one of the main reasons why we have played tough in almost every game his passing defense and ability to get to the line has been fun to watch he reminds me of former in state trees player Khristian Smith just a good hardworking solid player and will keep getting better DC has also been a plesent surprise this year that block that he had the other night made me think of Giddy excited about the future of our young guys!
