SEMO hoops just can't catch a breakPosted Monday, August 25, 2008, at 11:38 PM
The SEMO men's basketball program just can't catch any kind of a break these days.
On the heels of another NCAA investigation, SEMO coach Scott Edgar told me Monday night that senior point guard Hank Harris suffered a torn achilles tendon while playing in a pickup game late last week.
Harris will likely miss the entire season, although he could redshirt and retain a final year of eligibility.
Harris was primarily Roderick Pearson's backup last season, although he made three starts while appearing in 25 games.
In his first year at SEMO after transferring from junior college, Harris averaged just 2.2 points per game but had by far the team's best assist-to-turnover ratio with 42 assists against 23 turnovers.
With Pearson having transferred, Harris appeared to stand a solid chance of being the Redhawks' starting point guard this season.
Edgar also said there is no news regarding the status of Martino Brock, SEMO most touted incoming recruit. Edgar said SEMO still has not heard back from the NCAA, which is reviewing Brock's eligibility status.
Edgar said Brock, a 6-5 wing who would be a freshman, has not arrived in Cape Girardeau to begin classes as he awaits word from the NCAA. A decision is expected any day now. The fall semester at SEMO started Monday.
