BREAKING NEWS: Corey Lowe to play against Maine

According to BU coach Dennis Wolff, Corey Lowe will play in BU's next game against the University of Maine on Thursday (7:00 p.m. at Case Gymnasium) and has recovered quickly from what appeared bad right ankle sprain in Saturday's win over Iona.

Before practice on Tuesday, Wolff said that Lowe was "fine," the swelling had been eliminated and the sprain was a mild one. The junior guard shot around, but didn't fully participate in the practice session. Lowe is expected to run full-speed tomorrow, though he appeared to be favoring the ankle a tiny bit during shooting drills.

The announcement comes as a bit of a surprise given the average recovery time for a sprained ankle as well as the (now incorrectly) presumed severity of the injury, but if he truly is healthy, getting Lowe back into form prior to the start of the America East Tournament could be hugely beneficial for the Terriers.

In addition, freshman forward Jake O'Brien turned his left ankle when he landed on another players' foot after grabbing a rebound toward the end of practice. O'Brien was helped off the floor and had the ankle taped. His status for Thursday's game is unknown.
