Dyson Out for Season
Dyson had successful surgery this afternoon. The torn meniscus in his right knee was able to be repaired, meaning he'll miss the rest of the 2008-09 season. Typical rehab time is about 3-4 months.
It's a tough loss for UConn, obviously, and puts them from Final Four favorites to one of many teams that could get that far. It says here that the Huskies will still make a serious run in March. I don't believe we've seen the best this year from A.J. Price or Stanley Robinson (though we're running out of patience with the latter).
Oh, and that head coach of theirs can coach a little bit, and often thrives under adverse circumstances.
