CHICO STATE HEAD COACH GREG CLINK SAYS HIS TEAM WILL REBOUND FROM A TOUGH WEEKEND
IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA AS THEY RETURN HOME FOR A PAIR AT ACKER THIS WEEKEND
In today's installment of Clink's Corner Chico State head basketball coach Greg Clink says his team is prepared to bounce back after two losses in the Los Angeles basin last weekend. The Wildcats dropped a heart-breaker 54-53 to Cal State Los Angeles and then were over-whelmed by Cal State Dominguez Hills 67-41 on Saturday.
The Wildcats not only lost the game on Friday, but lost two starters to injuries in the waning moments of the game that kept them out of Saturday's match-up with the Toros. Jason Conrad was fouled hard going for a dunk with a little more than five minutes left and suffered two cuts to his face and a concussion after falling hard to the hardwood. Just minutes later Amir Carraway pulled a hamstring and could not play Saturday as well. Combine those injuries with Sean Park recovering from an ankle sprain suffered two weeks ago.....and the Cats were without three pivotal players in their Saturday match-up.
Clink said he gave the Wildcats Monday off to recuperate and rest after four straight road games. He told KPAY it is still too early to tell the availability of Park, Conrad and Carraway this weekend, but says they are making progress. In today's Clink's Corner he talks about the importance of the 7-foot Conrad to the Wildcats defensive scheme and also his club's inability to hit three point shots (6-for-49) over the weekend.
