Penn Says He’s Ready
By John Helsley
LUBBOCK – Breaking news from Lubbock… via Facebook… via Ray Penn… on Ray Penn.
The freshman point guard apparently will play today, according to the man himself on his Facebook page.
Penn has been doing light work in practices this week and has suffered no setbacks to the “stress reaction” in his knee. At Friday night’s shootaround inside United Spirit Arena, Cowboys coach Travis Ford told us he was leaning toward using Penn some today against Texas Tech.
Now Penn has declared himself ready.
After missing the past four games, Penn is likely to be rusty.
Still, he says he believes he’ll be back to normal soon.
Ford is counting on it.
“We need him to be,” Ford said. “I think it’ll be difficult, but there are eight games left and hopefully more after that. I think he can get back to there. I’m anxious to see it because I think it’s going to be a great test for him and really see how much determination and what he’s made of between the ears a little bit because he has been sitting out.
“When he’s ready to go, I’m throwing him back in there. We need him, we need him badly.”
