Alfred Aboya Eyes Comeback Soon

By Bruin Basketball Report

Alfred Aboya is scheduled to rejoin the team during the first week of December perhaps in time for the Wooden Classic game versus Nevada on December 10th. He had arthoscopic knee surgery on October 12.

Aboya said, "I'll be back in two weeks" Aboya said. "Don't worry. I'll be back."

As evidenced in games versus Memphis and Drexel during the NIT, the Bruins need to shore up the paint and Aboya at 6'8 and 242 lbs may be part of the solution. Aboya plays a tough inside game the Bruins currently lack and will certainly need when they enter into Pac 10 play in December.

Before Aboya's injury, head coach Ben Howland had suggested he was the Bruins most fierce and best rebounder on both ends of the court.

Coupled with his fellow countryman, Luc Richard Mbah a Moute who has been the Bruins leading rebounder this season, both players figure to play key roles on the team this year as just freshmen.
