It’s official… MBA students are not meant to play basketball. Tonight I drove a classmate to the ER after he had a bad fall during a basketball game. Initially we thought he broke his ankle, but it turns out that it’s just severely sprained. Obviously an injury such as this is bound to happen; however, this incident is the 4th Fisher 2011 basketball injury since school began.
Earlier in the year a group of Fisher MBAs were playing basketball in the ARC and during a wild loose ball scramble, one of our classmates tore his Achilles tendon. Four days later, another MBA student went down with a nasty high ankle sprain. Roughly a month later, a third classmate broke his foot in a pick-up game. These are troubling stats, especially since the Fisher MBA intramural basketball team starts our season next week.
Feel better Greg. We need you back next week.
