Austin “Cuban” Sowders left the game last night after reinjuring his shoulder. Sowders came down awkwardly from a rebound in obvious pain. He originally injured it last season and has since had issues with it. Coach Weaver said, “It's one of those injuries that can happen at any time. Over the summer, Cuban reinjured it while swimming. We'll just take it day by day and see how it goes.”
