Justin Fry Out For First Half of Season

UMBC Athletics Press Release:

On Sept. 30, UMBC senior forward Justin Fry underwent successful surgery to repair the medial patellofemoral ligament in his right knee in order to prevent the reoccurrence of dislocation.  He suffered the injury during a workout with teammates a month ago.  With a successful rehabilitation, Fry could return to active duty in January of 2010.

Fry averaged 8.1 points and 4.7 rebounds per game while starting 26 of 7 games last season.  He missed five games in February after suffering a dislocation of the right kneecap in the final moments of a Feb. 7 overtime win at Maine.  The 6’9” post scored a career-high 19 points and collected his third double-double in six outings with 10 rebounds in America East quarterfinal win over Boston University on March 7.

Fry has competed in 89 games in three seasons, starting 59.

Ok on the bright side he has a chance to be back for conference play, but this is obviously a big hit to the men’s basketball team and it is never certain a player can come back at full strength from any injury.
