Freshman Junior Cadougan Suffers Achilles Injury
Sept. 18, 2009
Milwaukee - Freshman Junior Cadougan of the Marquette University men's basketball team suffered an injury to his achilles tendon Thursday afternoon during conditioning and will more than likely miss the entire 2009-10 campaign, head coach Buzz Williams announced Friday morning.
Cadougan will undergo surgery on his right foot in the coming days and will immediately begin the 4-to-6 month rehabilitation process.
"We all know injuries are a part of sports," Williams said. As a program, we are all hurt and disappointed for Junior. He will receive the absolute best care possible prior to, during, and after his surgery. Even though he will not be in uniform this year, he will still be a valuable member of our team this season."
The Toronto, Ontario, native is one of six newcomers on this year's squad, a group that comprised a consensus nationally ranked recruiting class. Cadougan averaged 22.0 points, 8.0 assists, 5.0 rebounds and 4.0 steals per game as a senior at Christian Life Center Academy in 2008-09 and was expected to compete for time at the point guard position.
