Murray State's Jenkins hurt cutting down the net

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Murray State guard B.J. Jenkins suffered a cut on the index finger of his non-shooting hand while helping cut down the net after the Racers won the Ohio Valley Conference tournament title on March 6.

The cut required staples that have since removed, and Murray State's second-leading scorer is close to being back to 100 percent after practicing and is expected to play in tomorrow's first-round game against Vanderbilt, according to Racers coach Billy Kennedy.

"He cut his hand cutting a net down, and I don't understand how it happened," Kennedy said.

"I think he was embarrassed he did it. I didn't know about it until the next day, but it was a pretty good gash."
