Monday’s HUGE game: No. 13 Fort Hays St. at No. 1 Central Missouri

First things first — I don’t think FHSU’s Tim Peintner is going to be playing in this one, which is a shame. He’s got a high ankle sprain he’s dealing with and the word I’m getting is that it’s uncertain when he’ll be back. If you don’t know much about high ankle sprains, let me give you a quick refresher course: It feels like you broke/tore something, and it ain’t far from it.

That being said, I still think the Tigers have a shot at winning this game, which is for an early-season lead in the MIAA men’s race. They’re as deep as all get-out, even without arguably their best player headed to play at the UCM multipurpose building (SIDEBAR: UCM needs to get a better name for their arena).

I’m kind of excited for this one, so check here if you want in-game updates tomorrow … we tip at 7:30 p.m.

Out. TA.
