UM's frontcourt grows thinner after Gamble tears ACL, ruled out for season

Jim Larranaga's thinning front court just took another big hit.

Julian Gamble Senior Julian Gamble, a 6-9 senior forward who was expected to help fill-in for Reggie Johnson while he sits out until Janurary, tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left leg according to UM. Gamble will miss the entire season.

"We feel awful for Julian Gamble," Larranaga said in a statement released by the school. "Tearing your ACL is a devastating injury at any time in your career, but particularly in your fifth year of eligibility. Julian is a bright, hard working and competitive athlete. We will do everything we can to support him in his efforts to rehabilitate this injury. We know he will also be there supporting his teammates, becuase that is just the kind of person he is."

Gamble started 13 games last season and averaged 3.8 points, 4.0 rebounds and 0.8 blocks per game.

:We are never given more than we can handle, so I never ask "Why me?" just "Why not?" because i will come out on top!," Gamble posted on his Twitter account Tuesday.

The Canes now have two post players injured as the college hoop season quickly approaches. UM will have to rely heavily on redshirt-sophomore center Kenny Kadji, who will be eligible to play this season after transferring from the University of Florida.

Johnson, the team-leader in rebounds and third-leading scorer, underwent surgery on June 30 to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee. Johnson was expected to be sidelined for 5-6 months from the date of the surgery. Larranaga has said he's hopeful Johnson will be back by January.

A speedy recovery to Gamble. The team will be competetive, but I don't know how far they'll go.

Sooooooo, where are U Cane Fans screaming from the mountain top about how Yahoo!’s story is full of holes, a bowling alley owner said nothing ever happened, there’s only photos and why the others involved at other schools s are cleared …

U starting to finally see things for what they actually are and not for what U hope and see from Ur delUded thimble minds ? Good lil Cane Fan. Ur learning the difference between reality and delUsion …

Arty and I have been the Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein on this situation since this time last year. We continued to tell U what was going to happen days before it became breaking news. U wouldn’t listen and U allowed, through Ur own stubborness, to let Urselves get beatn over the head time and time again…

One last bit of info for U. By this time tomorrow, the hits will keep on coming. 15 to be exact. Then the final stages of Ur Ship will begin to list and slooooooooowwwwly begin to sink and slide into the Abyss over the next 8 years…

Finally, if U ClUcks ever need any expert knowledge about Football or anything Sports related, Arty and I will be glad to answer Ur questions and educate U …


Yo Arty … btw- I’m Redford

Basketball article? As if there's going to be a basketball team at this school again.

You want to put something round in a hoop...start with Haith's head.

Oh no. Soldy, really tempting me. Really getting under my skin. Ooooooohhhhh boy you make me mad Soldy.

Only you don't. Not after you have said the same thing 43 times in 10 days. Its boring. And creepy that you feel a need to do this. Like a child molester.

Really boring dope.

snakebitten... Regardless, Canes until I die!

To the loser that spends all of his time on our sites... Get a life and a job. It's people like you who piss me off.

My tax dollars are paying your unemployment, while you sit on your ass blogging on our sites. SAD

I predict the basketball program will get hit harder than the football program. I just can't wait until it's all over let's just get going with the punishments so we can start to build again. Look at tenesee as an example of their recent ruling.

University of Miami calls a 4pm Press Conferece Today ...
