Aronhalt a "coin flip" for Xavier game

Logan Aronhalt has had a terrific start to his sophomore season.

It's one that UAlbany coach Will Brown hopes isn't stunted at all by a lower back injury that his sophomore captain suffered in the team's last game against Colgate.

Aronhalt played just 13 minutes against the Raiders in a 63-61 victory because he landed hard on his tailbone.

"I'd be shocked if he can go through an entire practice today," Brown said Monday morning from Cincinnati. "I don't know how much he will play tomorrow."

Aronhalt hasn't practiced since that game, is still having trouble bending and running and so the team's 12-hour bus ride couldn't have helped his back.

Brown said that his second leading scorer is a "coin flip" to play against the Musketeers.

"For me to play him tomorrow, I have to be confident that he can help us and that he's comfortable out there," Brown said.

Brown knows that Aronhalt will want to play because he's from nearby Zanesville, about 150 miles east of Cincinnati.

With the conference opener against New Hampshire coming on Jan. 2, Brown is concerned about getting Logan back to 100 percent.

"I absolutely am more concerned about him being able to play in our conference opener than I am in these next two games," he said.
