UPDATE 2/25: Holland injures ankle in win over Binghamton; remains "day-to-day"

By Craig Meyer/DFP Staff

Boston University men's basketball senior forward John Holland injured his left ankle in the Terriers' 53-51 win over Binghamton University Thursday night in Vestal, N.Y.

The injury occurred late in the first half with BU holding a lead, and Holland had to be helped off of the court. Although he did walk on his own will to the team's locker room, he was on crutches after the game.

The severity of the injury was described as "day-to-day," and it will likely keep him out of BU's game at the University of Vermont on Sunday (an effectively moot game between two teams that have already clinched the top two seeds for the conference tournament), though he is expected to be back for the Terriers' first game of the America East Conference Tournament on March 5, according to a team official.

The preseason all-America East selection currently leads the AE in scoring at 19.2 points per game, along with 5.7 rebounds per game.

Well that is a relief. I knew with enough faith that the Dark Lord Dennis Wolff would not be able to harm John Holland. I think he got to Brendan Bald instead.

I am so glad we have Patrick Chambers, the dark wizard hunter as our leader.
