IN THIS CASE, WE'RE TALKING ABOUT SENIOR GUARD MARCUS WILLIAMS, SAM HOUSTON STATE TRANSFER, ALBUQUERQUE, NM,AVERAGING 18.4 POINTS PER GAME...

IF YOU ATTENDED OR WATCHED THE UNIV. COLORADO/PUEBLO BASKETBALL GAME LAST MONTH, YOU NOTICED THAT MARCUS WILLIAMS FELL TO THE GYM FLOOR, WRITHING IN PAIN AFTER DRIVING TO THE BASKET DURING THE FINAL SECONDS OF THE GAME. HE HAD TO BE CARRIED OFF THE FLOOR, GIMPLY WALKING ON ONE LEG,  HOLDING THE OTHER UP, WITHOUT PUTTING ANY PRESSURE ON IT.

SINCE THAT GAME, HE HASN'T APPEARED IN THE LINEUP. THE BASKETBALL COACH, JOE HARGE HASN'T REPORTED HIS INJURY. NOR HAS THE SPORTS INFORMATION DIRECTOR (SID). NO ONE FROM THE OPTIC REPORTED ON IT.

 

THIS IS A PLAYER AVERAGING 18.4 POINTS PER GAME! WHAT DID WILLIAMS DO, DISAPPEAR OFF THE HARDWOODS FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE YEAR WITH A SEASON-ENDING INJURY?

THIS ISN'T THE FIRST TIME THIS HAS HAPPENED. THERE SEEMS TO BE A "VEIL OF SECRECY" IN THE ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT WHY THESE NOTEWORTHY STORIES AREN'T DISSEMINATED TO THE PUBLIC. ITS DONE AT EVERY OTHER DIVISION II SCHOOL, SO WHY NOT THE HU ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT?


ONLY ATHLETIC DIRECTOR (AD) MANZANARES CAN ANSWER THAT. PERHAPS HE CAN ALSO ANSWER HOW HE GOT THE AD JOB AFTER BEING FIRED AS HEAD BASKETBALL COACH...NOW THAT WOULD BE NEWSWORTHY!!!
