The Red Foxes may be without senior captain Adam Kemp for the weekend as Marist tests their five game winning streak on the road against Siena and Manhattan.
Kemp left the game with 3:38 remaining against Canisius with an undisclosed injury. Head coach Jeff Bower said that the senior has been held out of practice and they are awaiting evaluation on Kemp’s right knee injury.
“We’re still waiting to get everything pulled together and finalized on his status,” Bower said. “He’s been seen by doctors and we’re waiting to get the final outcome.”
The first year head coach of the Red Foxes said that the captain has been held out of practice on Wednesday and is not expected to practice on Thursday.
“I don’t really know,” Bower said on Kemp’s status for the weekend. “I’ll wait until we get everything finalized with the doctors and get their opinions on his status. I mean, he hasn’t practiced yesterday and he’s not expected to practice today and we’re waiting to get the medical information all processed and reviewed and course of action set.”
Kemp missed the second game of the season against Elon after injuring his ankle against Stony Brook in the final minutes of the game.
One coach who would not mind seeing Kemp out of the game would be Siena head coach Jimmy Patsos, who Kemp last greeted with a 23 point, 15 rebound effort against Loyola (Maryland) in February.
