Breaking News: Penn Out Today
By John Helsley
MANHATTAN — Cowboys point guard Ray Penn will not play today, due to soreness in his left leg.
Penn is in street clothes.
Fellow freshman Fred Gulley will start at the point, with Keiton Page and Reger Dowell likely to see time there as well.
Details on Penn’s injury are so far sketchy. It has been described as pain between the knee and the shin, to which I responded: “What is between the knee and the shin?”
Will have more details later.
The initial word is that the injury is not serious, but with three games coming up in the next eight days, coaches chose to rest Penn. They may have to pick their spots to rest him the rest of the way, as well.
Gulley made three starts earlier in the season. He’s averaging 15 minutes per game in Big 12 play.
This will be a tough environment for his first Big 12 start, as the Wildcats are riding a Bramlage Coliseum-record, 14-game winning streak and coming off a Monday upset of top-ranked Texas.
