Oh… And Disappointment
I had waited months to see Markelle Fultz play. Patiently, I had circled the calendar for the road game visit to Pullman, Washington. I purchased courtside seats months ago. My plan was to make a day of it, watching the phenomenal Markelle Fultz play the game be loved. Like Markelle Fultz, I am learning to deal with disappointment.
He last played on February 18th. He has now “rested” his knee for ten days. Since the huge loss at UCLA 107-66, Fultz has only played in two of the past five games. In the two outings, he scored 19 points in 30 minutes in the loss to Arizona State University, and scored 26 points in a losing effort against the Arizona Wildcats.
As of the UW-WSC contest, the Huskies had lost ten consecutive games, the longest losing streak in the history of UW. It would get worse.
"“UW coach Lorenzo Romar said freshman guard Markelle Fultz, the Pac-12’s leading scorer, has not been cleared by doctors to return to the court, and his status for Wednesday’s game remains uncertain. Fultz sat out UW’s 79-71 loss at Washington State on Sunday, and has now missed three of the team’s last five games due to a sore knee.”"
This could spell disastrous for Fultz with the upcoming NBA Draft.
