It has just been announced on the LMU’s website (link above), Dameane Douglas is out for the remainder of the season. This news comes after he sat out the entire 2019-2020 basketball season.
The article doesn’t go into the details of the injury, so I can only speculate it is very bad and may be a repeat injury. Come to think of it, I’m not entirely sure what the injury was that sidelined him last season.
“Dameane is a tough person who is the ultimate competitor…There’s no doubt in my mind he will come back a better player and more determined individual than ever before. He means so much to our team and is a huge part of what we are building here at LMU.”Stan Johnson
Douglas was starting to show his natural basketball abilities and athleticism, so this injury is definitely going to be a major setback to the program. I hope he can recover during the off-season and come back healthy for the 2021-2022 season.
LMU (8-6) will continue their WCC regular season play this Saturday (1/30) at 2PM PST when they face the USD Toreros (2-6) down in San Diego. LMU should definitely be favored in this one, but after how crazy this season has been with COVID-19 game cancellations, they shouldn’t take this Toreros team lightly.
