As Baron athletes are in the middle of the winter season, one team is facing the most challenges relating to injuries. The Boys Basketball team has at least four injured players.
The team’s star center Joe Jepsen is out for an indefinite amount of time with an injured meniscus. The loss of the center will prove to be problematic, especially in the upcoming rivalry games against Walter Johnson and Whitman.
Guard Curtis Chambers is also out at the moment with a sprained ankle. Chambers is a valuable asset coming off the bench, and the second unit will miss his productivity against Walter Johnson.
Beck Urofsky recently tore his meniscus against Blair, in which B-CC took down the previously undefeated powerhouse. The young star will miss a significant amount of the remaining season.
Sophomore Bryce Knight has a knee injury that has sidelined him the whole season.
B-CC faces Walter Johnson tonight in a game where tensions will be high. After recent developments involving graffiti vandalization at both schools, the crowd on both sides of the court may be louder than usual. The Baron boys hope to use that energy to increase their level of play.
Despite the injuries, B-CC has a good chance bringing down Walter Johnson. The bench, especially juniors Tate Smyth and Kurt Feinaur, will need to come big. Remember to be respectful Barons.
