And The Hits Keep On Coming, UTEP Suffers Another Blow To The Frontcourt


Per the El Paso Times.. Power Forward Cedrick Lang has suffered a stress fracture in his foot. This is a huge blow to the Miners if he misses any significant playing time. UTEP is already without Hooper Vint, who suffered a bulging disk in his back just before the Diamond Head Classic, and Malcolm Moore who tore his ACL during practice a few weeks ago. The Miners big men during the 11/12 season have been just absolutely snake bitten with injuries.

Lang has been averaging 7.4 points per game while bringing down just under 5 rebounds per game. If Lang misses some playing time, UTEP is going to have to rely heavily on Senior Gabriel McCulley and Sophomore John Bohannon to stay out of foul trouble while having to play small in some minutes to give McCulley and Bohannon breathers.

This is very disappointing news to hear and we at MinerRush wish Cedrick Lang a quick recovery.

We'll update further on Lang's status when we get word.
