SPRAINED ANKLE TO KEEP BURGESS OUT OF USA BASKETBALL WORLD UNIVERSITY GAMES TRAINING CAMP
RICHMOND, Va. – Rising senior Bradford Burgess of the VCU men's basketball team will not be traveling to Colorado Springs this weekend, as originally planned.
Burgess, who was among 22 invitees to the USA Basketball Men's World University Game Training Camp, suffered a sprained ankle this week and will not make the trip out west.
The injury will not affect the upcoming 2011-12 season for the Midlothian, Va. native, who will be one of two returning starters from last year's Final Four squad.
Since coming to VCU, Burgess has started all 110 games for the Black & Gold.
This past season, he surpassed the 1,000-point plateau and sits at 1,200 points entering his final season.
It's already been a busy summer for Burgess, who participated in the Chris Paul Skills Camp and the Kevin Durant Skills Camp.
