Edu Injured?
There is a rumor floating around that AJ is again injured. I really hope this is not true for the young man's sake, but it's out there according to the Philippine coach. If it is just an internet rumor, it's a sick joke.

Seems like a quick call would resolve the issue. Prior injuries were reported promptly, although at least one occurred pretty publicly.

Wow... I am stunned and yet not surprised if this is indeed true. I’ll cross my fingers and pray that this is untrue. The kid needs some good news.

Hoping for the best.

Go Rockets!

RE: Edu Injured?
Terrible new! You got to feel bad for AJ who has put in so much work the past 2 years to get back onto the court to now see another season go by the wayside! I’m not sure what he’ll want to do moving forward as this is got to be a tough situation for him not only physically but just as much mentally. Wish him the best for whatever he decides to do. As for the Rockets, it looks like we might be back to playing “small ball" again this season without a true "experienced" post player on the squad. That is unless we find someone still left in the “Transfer Portal” that could come in and provide quality minutes and fits TK’s culture. You got to wonder if such a player exists this late into the summer?

This is why some of us wanted another post player besides the 6-11 freshman…

Feel so bad for AJ. I have been critical of Coach for signing so many guards, and with AJ's injury history, this was a possibility. Now we have one player taller than 6-7, not a single true PF and no backup at center. Keep signing those guards coach!

Definitely weak knee structure. Can’t see how he’ll ever play at a high level again.

Agreed. I feel so bad for him. It must be awful going through 2 rehabs and now this - again.

After the second injury, I wondered if he could stay healthy. As some said above - this is why they needed another (or 2) big guys.

But for us fans, another disappointment, another year. Ouch, this one hurts.

UT allowed Edu to travel home to London to be with his family.

Again we find the Rockets in a bad way up front! Never seem to be any good at getting the bigs consistently. C on getting BIGS!

Really sorry for AJ. So many hurdles for him. Have to wonder if he’ll ever play effectively again now.

As for the program: yep, we’re gonna get destroyed in the paint this coming season. Highly doubt there’s a post player with experience & talent still available, and I don’t know that there’s a scholarship to even give.It’s no secret how I feel about TK’s inability to recruit more than 1 decent player in the paint at one time; now, that options gone. But hey—we have plenty of 6’4” guys who can throw it up from the 3 point line. That didn’t work this past season, or the season before that. Seems like forever since Booth was on the floor, doesn’t it?

Actually, it did work out last year. If my memory is correct we were the sole winner of the league championship. Our lack of depth hurt us in the tournament. But it sure would have helped to have AJ in our lineup for this year.

Yes—we get to hang another banner in Savage. But when the measure is making it to the NCAA tournament, then it didn’t work. An inability to play effectively in the paint cost us in both the MAC tournament & the NIT game against a Richmond playing without 2 of its starters. Just be prepared for more of the same.

I for one am very proud of hanging that banner. Over a long MAC season during a crazy COVID year, they finished with the best record in the league. Yes, I know the NCAA Tournament is the ultimate goal. But, I'm proud of what they accomplished this past season and would be very happy if their small ball approach led to another regular season championship this coming season.

We could have signed the big 6-9 kid from Italy or England??? who eventually went to some low DI school, but no, we needed another guard. Of course Coach knew Edu was going to be just fine.
