Men's Basketball Head Coach Kevin Stallings commented earlier this week on the status of sophomore center A.J. Ogilvy.
Ogilvy missed the first game of his career against Saint Francis on December 31 with a right foot injury. He returned to the lineup in the Commodores’ last outing against UMass on January 3 and contributed 14 points and eight rebounds in 22 minutes.
“A.J. is recovering fine, but we’re still being very protective and careful with him. He probably practiced for half the practice Monday and looked good. His health is obviously critical to our team. We can’t afford to have him go down.”
“I think it’s something that we’re going to have to continue to deal with, but I’m not concerned about his ability to play this weekend.”
Vanderbilt will return to the court Saturday for its SEC opener at Kentucky.
