A sprained collarbone?!  Holy smokes, this team has a storm cloud over it right now.  It's such a rare injury...and yes, it is a real one.  It's actually called an SC joint sprain (I had one from a violent hit I put on a RB who ended up running me over for a TD, when I played safety in HS).  It's usually caused by a really, really forceful hit to the upper body...hence rare.  

The injury sucks and can lead to TOS (thoracic outlet syndrome) due to a narrowing of the area.  Lot of blood vessels, nerves, etc. in that area.  I have TOS as does my cousin who played OL at FSU and was subjected to lord knows how many upper body hits.  If you y'all remember Markell Fultz's disastrous first couple of years, he ultimately got diagnosed with both an SC sprain that hadn't healed and TOS.

Wishing a speedy recover to Marcus Jackson.

What are we, doctors?

No, but I play one on my iPad😂

Thanks to 96 for the correct diagnosis. I guess it’s easier to say than sternoclavicular joint injury.

Sample convo:

Hey, I’ve got a sternoclavicular joint injury. Bro, can you still have children? vs

Hey, I’ve gotta collar bone sprain. Bro, I’ll get you a straw for your beer  

The good news is it appears a two week or less recovery time is possible.

I had this injury after wiping out on some moguls while full send on some skis at Jiminy Peak years ago. I waited 3 days to go ER and they basically yelled at me for waiting so long. My arm was literally paralyzed an hour after I fell to the point where I couldn't lift it or move it (pain or not) and had to drive home using my left arm only.

And yes, if not crazy, 1-2 weeks is probably right. I think I wore a sling for a week for mine.

Was in the stands, with good view of his awkward fall with his shoulder taking the full impact of the floor.  As I said earlier, he was making a play on the ball that was not going to happen.  I am hoping he not in too much discomfort now, because on Saturday he appeared to be extreme pain.

I was about to ask if the skis were still in your basement, then realized where you are 😂

UALBANY MEN’S BASKETBALL

 

Danes look for accountability

UAlbany may change lineup after big loss to American

UAlbany’s Gerald Drumgoole said the team was unable to get the stops it needed to get back in the game against American.

With nearly a week between losing to American and traveling to UMass, the University at Albany men’s basketball team has plenty of time to reflect.

The Great Danes suffered their worst loss of the season Tuesday night, 88-62, allowing the Eagles to shoot 71.4 percent and 72.7 percent from 3-point range. It was their second loss of the season by 20 or more points, and their worst since a 71-43 defeat against Kansas State in December 2021.

“It’s definitely hard to play through, when the other team has a lot of momentum. It’s hard to stay solid, because you have to constantly just match the intensity, score and come back and just rely on getting another stop, and that’s something we just did not get done tonight,” said senior forward Gerald Drumgoole Jr. following the loss.

Coach Dwayne Killings said it was “probably our worst defensive effort of the year.” American made all but 13 shots and outscored UAlbany 54-24 in the paint.

“We were just in constant rotations where we were a step slow, and they took advantage of it. I thought they did a really good job running their stuff, and I thought they shot the ball and attacked with really good confidence,” Killings said.

Except for a 67-62 defeat at Towson in the season opener, all UAlbany’s losses have been by double digits, and the team has just one win against a Division I opponent this season — Presbyterian, which recorded its first Division I win Tuesday against Virginia Military Institute. According to KenPom’s analytics, UAlbany ranks 311th in adjusted offensive efficiency and 327th in adjusted defensive efficiency.

Improvement will require “accountability,” Drumgoole said.

“Everybody just own up to their mistakes, come back here ready to work,” he said. “If we had the chance to go out there and play again, I’m pretty sure the whole team would really want to go play, but the chance slipped away through our hands.”

“We talk in our program a lot about looking in the mirror and not out the window, and we use that as a way to remind the guys that we can’t point the fingers at other guys. We have to take ownership of what we’re doing,” Killings said.

Killings also said he planned on changing the lineup: “Everything’s up for grabs.”

Tuesday, he started the regular trio of Da’Kquan Davis, Drumgoole and freshman forward Jonathan Beagle, along with Ny’Mire Little and Malik Edmead, who filled in for Aaron Reddish (illness). UAlbany was also without Justin Neely (knee) and Marcus Jackson (collarbone). Neely, who tore his ACL against Siena, has a surgery scheduled “in the next seven to 10 days.”

“We have a short roster, so there’s a lot of opportunity out there for guys because of it,” Killings said.

Though Killings was speaking of depth, UAlbany’s average height is just over 6-foot-4, around an inch shorter than the Division I average, per Ken-Pom.

Beagle, who has started all seven games, was one of the few bright spots Tuesday, scoring 13 points and grabbing seven rebounds. He was named America East Rookie of the Week on Monday for the second time this season after averaging 10 points with 20 rebounds in three games last week.

“We’ve got to give Jonathan Beagle some support in the post,” Killings said.

No basements and no stairs. Last year I repurposed a folding ladder in the garage of our rental as a stair-stepper so my legs wouldn’t forget how to do stairs.

I'm gonna go against the grain and call an upset win tonight. While I've been one of the lone mostly positive posters (while being very critical at the same time) and it's not all the surprising for that type of prediction from me based on that, I can see UMass sleeping on how bad the team has been and some of these shots starting to fall. The team is too talented to miss this many easy shots. Hopefully it happens as a team playing as a team and not because someone played hero ball. Winning as a team would bode well for conference play. Winning because one player got hot and took over will signal more of the same. A loss tells us nothing as we aren't supposed to win anyway.
