Clemson freshman guard Rooks to miss basketball season
CLEMSON — Clemson freshman guard Patrick Rooks will miss the upcoming basketball season after injuring his hip during preseason workouts.
Tigers coach Brad Brownell announced Rooks’ status Friday. Clemson is opening basketball practice on Sunday.
Rooks, a 6-3, 175-pound guard from Charlotte, played for the Tigers on their trip to Italy last month. Brownell said Rooks will need surgery and the recovery time will keep him from playing this season.
Brownell said Rooks shot the ball well on the team’s European trip and would’ve helped Clemson’s 3-point shooting.
Stingrays head coach Spencer Carbery announced that the team agreed to terms with forward Anthony Collins.
Collins, 23, enters his second pro campaign after appearing in 35 games with the Mississippi Surge of the Southern Professional Hockey League (SPHL) last season, scoring two goals and four assists for six points and adding 130 penalty minutes.
