Dorenzo Hudson has been a star on the basketball court for the Hokies this season but unfortunately even stars fall sometimes. On January 16th at the Florida State vs. Virginia Tech game, Hudson suffered from a stress related bone bruise and has been dealing with the injury ever since.
Even still, this junior point guard has not let that affect the amount of points he has been racking up at every game. Just one week after he bruised his bone he scored the winning basket at the Boston vs. Virginia Tech game.
He has kept his game points very high to everyone’s delight. This injury has not caused Hudson to miss a game yet, although he did have to miss practice this week and sit out a few minutes during the game against Maryland on Feb 27th. Hudson has been a huge part of the Hokies success this season and this injury has kept everyone on the edge of their seat, just hoping that it won’t take their star out of the game.
Luckily with trainers, podiatric medical equipment (an orthopedic ankle brace and an immobilization boot), rest, and an amazing amount of determination on Hudson’s part, he has kept his game strong and will hopefully carry the Hokies to the NCAA championship.
