    Over 7 and a Half Feet of Disappointment

    The UNC Asheville Bulldogs basketball team had a secret weapon last year that helped them post a school record 23 wins last year. Expectations were just as high for this year until just a few weeks ago when star center Kenny George was told he need surgery on his right foot. UNC Asheville will miss all 7 feet 7 inches and 370 pounds of the NCAA field goal percentage leader from last year. George will likely miss the entire NCAA basketball season this year, as well as the fall semester of school. During training camp this August in Las Vegas, the tallest player in the NCAA said he felt discomfort in his right foot. When he went through an examination at a Chicago hospital, it was discovered that he had an infection that required immediate surgery. Now the Bulldogs will have to try and cope without the hulking presence and leadership of Kenny George. The NCAA basketball playing field will seem a lot smaller to spectators now that George is missing.
