News mixed for Coley, Wilderness

The Charlotte 49ers’ men’s basketball team got some good medical news and some bad Sunday.
Senior forward Charlie Coley still sports a distinctive cut over his left eye but will be ready for Tuesday night’s home game against Long Island.
Coley took an elbow above his eye with less than seven minutes left in Charlotte’s 100-80 win against Youngstown State on Dec. 21. He did not return to the game but finished with 13 points and 13 rebounds.
Coley, who was in attendance for Charlotte’s women’s game Sunday against No. 12 Notre Dame, said he needed eight stitches to close the cut and his eye was swollen shut for a day or so.
Also Sunday, the team announced sophomore forward An’Juan Wilderness has been diagnosed with a stress fracture in his left foot and could miss two weeks of action.
Wilderness has started all 10 games and is tied for third on the team with a 10.4 scoring average. He has scored in double figures five times, including three of the past four games.
Wilderness is expected to miss Charlotte’s games with Long Island on Tuesday, Saturday at Maryland and Jan. 7 at Duquesne. He hopes to return to action for the Jan. 10 home game against Tulsa.

Did Wilderness' injury happen during the win over Youngstown State? Or, did it happen in practice? Bad loss for the three games. He's a tough match-up.

Is it to late for Wilderness to get a medical redshirt?

I dont blame him for not playing this year, the team is awful! Our season died in November!!
