Top Junior Center Back In Action

After being sidelined since the first game of the season due to a broken bone in his foot, the nation's top junior center finally returned to the court on Tuesday night.

Despite St. Andrews falling 41-40 at the hands of Wilmington Friends, head coach Bob Rue had to enjoy watching 6-foot-10, 225 pound junior Eric Boateng getting back into the swing of things.

On the night Boateng logged 14 points while blocking a trio of shots in just 21 minutes of floor time due to a lack of conditioning and a concern of rushing back too fast from the injury. After the game Boateng did report soreness, but nothing too serious.

``Things are going well. He's getting better every day," Rue told TDD last week. "He still needs to get back into shape, but he looks good. He's starting to play with a lot of confidence again."

Boateng has yet to formulate a formal list of schools, though he is considering a number of high major programs including Duke, North Carolina, N.C. State, Kansas, Michigan, Villanova, Georgetown, Notre Dame, UCLA, BC, Georgia Tech, Penn State, Xavier and Virginia.

He has taken unofficial trips to Villanova, Georgetown, UNC, Duke and BC.
