Long road back, Campbell cleared to resume basketball activities

 

APSU Sports: Men’s Basketball

Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – Anthony Campbell smiled. No, he beamed.

When it was mentioned how important Thursday night was, he couldn’t help but smile, partially out of relief. It had been eight months since Campbell tore both the anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in his left knee during a December 8th practice, with surgery last December 28th. Thursday night was the so-called day of reckoning-it was the culmination of eight months of arduous-and sometimes painful-rehabilitation.

Thursday night was when Campbell was given “medical clearance to resume basketball activities” by team physician, Dr. Cooper Beazley, who performed the surgery back on December 28th. Back in May, Campbell was informed he had received a medical redshirt for the 2010-11 season and will be a junior athletically this season.

Campbell injury forces lineup restructuring

Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – Austin Peay will unveil a new starting lineup 7:30pm, Saturday, against Fontbonne.

It certainly is not what head coach Dave Loos had in mind, but those plans changed Wednesday when Preseason All-OVC forward Anthony Campbell, while working in a non-contact drill, crumpled to the court. Trainer Joni Johnson, when she arrived at Campbell’s side, almost knew immediately the news was not good. Tests and an MRI revealed Campbell had torn anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in his left knee. His season is finished.
