Late Sunday night a source close to the men’s basketball program confirmed to WKU Connection that Sophomore center Charles Bassey has sustained a season ending injury in Saturday nights match-up with Arkansas.
The actual specifics of the injury itself have not yet been publicized, but are likely to come out sometime within the week. (Likely Coach Stansbury’s press conference Monday afternoon).
Bassey was averaging 15.9 ppg and 9.6 rebounds per game entering Saturday night.
Several NBA Draft evaluation sites had Charles listed as a top 10 pick in the upcoming NBA draft.
Western Kentucky is off this week for finals and will not play in again until an exhibition match with Kentucky Wesleyan on Tuesday December 14th.
