ASU will limp into Show Me CenterPosted Tuesday, November 17, 2009, at 10:42 AM
SEMO's chances of breaking its 20-game losing streak in men's basketball when Arkansas State comes to town Wednesday night have improved considerably.
ASU will be shorthanded after what happened during Monday's season-opening 93-47 rout of Division III MacMurray College.
Senior guard Donald Boone, ASU's top scorer from last year and a preseason all-Sun Belt Conference pick, suffered what is believed to be a torn ACL just minutes into the game and will likely miss the season. He definitely won't play Wednesday.
ASU projected starting guard Trey Finn was forced to sit out Monday with back spasms and it's uncertain when he'll return, according to the Jonesboro Sun.
In addition, starting point guard Rashad Allison pulled a hamstring in the second half and his status for Wednesday is not known at this time.
I know it's just one game, but I was very impressed with the SEMO women's basketball team during Monday's 73-63 upset of a strong Southern Mississippi squad.
It's amazing how much the young, inexperienced Redhawks improved in just a week, since their ugly 16-point exhibition loss to Division II Christian Brothers.
There are sure to be plenty of rough moments for the Redhawks, since they're so young, but Monday's performance certainly showed their potential.
