(West Plains) With the opening of the college basketball season just days away, the Missouri State University-West Plains Grizzlies suffered a body blow when sophomore center Malcolm Henderson suffered a knee injury which will sideline him for the entire season.
Henderson, a 6-7 sophomore from Chatequguay, Quebec, Canada, sat out most of last season after breaking his foot at the Elite Eight Tournament at Coffeyville, Kansas. He sustained an A.C.L injury to his knee during scrimmages at Overland Park, Kansas, last week.
Henderson was leading the team in rebounding in the preseason.
The Grizzlies will open the season Friday night at 7 pm at the West Plains Civic Center when they take on the Rattlers of Otero Junior College of La Junta, Colorado.
