Quote of the day

This quote is from men’s basketball head coach Kevin Keatts sharing an update on Terquavion Smith.

“I haven’t been able to really get him out on the floor to even determine where he’s at,” Keatts said. “I just know he’s really, really sore right now. 

“I would say it’ll be a game time decision. But, you know, it’s going to be tough because I don’t I don’t even know if he could shoot the basketball at this moment. He fell on his, it was more of his right elbow on his shooting hand, and so I’ll know a little bit more later on today.”
