Basketball: Robertson to miss Jacksonville

Cal coach Mike Montgomery said that senior Theo Robertson had an MRI on his right foot Monday morning, but will not play Tuesday night against Jacksonville.

Results of the test weren’t immediately available, but Montgomery said, “At first blush, it was pretty positive.” He meant posititive, as in good news. We should know more Tuesday.

Robertson, who averaged 18.0 ppg in Cal’s first two games, injured the foot sometime last week and missed the Bears’ two games at Madison Square Garden. Senior forward Harper Kamp will miss his fifth straight game while still recovering from knee surgery last spring.

RANKINGS: Cal’s losses to Syracuse and Ohio State dropped the Bears from No. 13 to No. 29 in the Associated Press national rankings, and from No. 12 to No. 23 in the ESPN/USA Today coaches poll.

    well, if an MRI is positive, that is NEGATIVE!

    Mike…Give us some info? and how the heck is Harper–will he redshirt?

    without those 2…well as it was said:

    No Theo, No Harper, NO CHANCE. :(

    Com’n Theo, get better the Bears need you!

    Considering one of the Big 3 was out and no Kamp, I though Cal did okay against Cuse and OSU. Cuse as everyone knows is WAY better then anyone thought.

    Calfanz,
    When Monty said things appeared positive, he meant he’s hoping it’s good news, not that the MRI itself was positive. I am impatient also to get some details on this, but they are holding off until they have a specific diagnosis, rather than guessing. Hope to have something definitive on Tuesday. As far as Kamp goes, still no plans to red-shirt him. He’s practicing, but they are being very cautious to hold him out of games until he can play and practice without substantial pain or setback.

    I was in NYC.

    It was men vs boys.

    Unfortunately, both teams had us overmatched (height and weight) at EVERY position. Both teams took us out of our offense. Our defense was…our defense.
    Nikola/Seeley/Max/Amoke/Bak just don’t have the moxy and physical attributes to play top 15 teams. We have no depth.

    GET WELL HARPER AND THEO!

    I think Amoke is close to being there. The only silver lining in Theo and Harper missing time is that Omondi is getting good minutes (that he otherwise probably would not get). He does a great job of gettin to the rim, he just needs to finish, and that is experience and confidence. I’d like to see him start against Jacksonville. They don’t have any real height, and maybe a game like this could be the breakout game (from a scoring perspective) that he needs.
