Luke Apfeld was on the court for pre practice shoot around today, but don't get too excited, he still plans to be out 3 to 6 weeks with a lower leg injury.
Apfeld was in a walking boot Saturday when Vermont beat UMBC, 68-53. UVM Head Coach John Becker told us after the game that Apfeld had sprained his ankle in a practice before the season. He had been playing through that and various other nagging injuries. Both Coach Becker and Apfeld stressed that sitting out games at the start of the season wouldn't have prevented this current situation.
It's a busy week for the UVM men's basketball team. Wednesday night the Cats host Binghamton, then Stony Brook comes to Patrick Gym on Friday.
