University of Kentucky announced today that Alex Poythress will, unfortunately, be unable to play for the rest of the season. During Thursday’s practice he tore his ACL.

UK students seem to have similar emotions about the situation. Senior, Laken Mitchell says, “The platoon system is going to go out the window because they are going to keep switching out players.”

UK Senior, Joel Southall, is from Poythress’s hometown. Joel has followed Poythress’s success since he signed with UK. He says, “It is not as sure handed. We will not be as stable as we were because he was the spark and the leader of the team.”

Other students agree that the team’s chemistry could be off because of this injury. Although a surgery date has not yet been set, recovery could take up to eight months.
