Get The Black Cat Out Of The Golden Panther Arena

Down goes another FIU hoopster and the season opener is still 9 days away. Add projected starting pointSoto  guard Josue Soto to the walking wounded of your Golden Panthers basketball team.

Soto fractured his thumb during a recent practice at FIU Arena. (Yeah, I know I called it Golden Panther Arena in this post's title, Golden Panther goes better with black cat). The word is Soto is expected to miss 3 to 4 months.

The injury leaves the point guard duties to Tremayne Russell and newcomer Harley Fuller to start the season. TR showed some flashes last season, especially his aggressiveness toward the hoop. HF is a junior transfer from New York.

The FIU hoops injury list now grows to: Alex Galindo (ankle), J.C. Otero (knee), Badara N'Diaye (knee) and Soto (thumb). N'Diaye is done for the season. The other 3 could return for Sun Belt play at the earliest.

Which of these FIU hoopsters cracked a mirror, walked under a ladder, had a black cat cross them or opened an umbrella indoors?
