Poor kid, has a stress fracture in his right kneecap now.

That’s really sad.

I root for kids who go to situations to help programs become something. Creek was one of those kids who could have jumped on the assembly lines at Pittsburgh, Texas or Maryland (other interests of his), but chose to try and make a bigger difference with Crean at Indiana. Good thing is, it’s not a Claxton situation where Geary went down his senior year, so hopefully he’ll be back at it again.

Boy, tough luck for the kid. You don’t often hear about fractured kneecaps - let alone have it happen twice to the same guy. Hopefully he can get back to his old self.
