If George is unable to play this season, he would need a medical waiver from the NCAA for a chance to compete in 2009-10.
George led the nation with a school- and Big South-record of 69.6 percent accuracy. He was 151-of-217 in 28 games. (You get a plaque from the NCAA for this.)
Injuries kept George from playing for the Bulldogs until his third year at Asheville, the 2006-07 season. He averaged 5.5 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.0 blocks in 23 games. When he shot, it generally went down as he made 61 of 79 (.772).
The problem with his right foot was discovered during a basketball camp in Las Vegas. Asheville coach Eddie Biedenbach told the Asheville Citizen-Times last week that the injury did not happen while he was playing basketball.
NCAA rules allow a student-athlete to apply for an extra year of eligibility if they miss a season due to a non-sports related injury.
Note: UNC's Tyler Hansbrough is listed at 6-foot-9, 250 pounds.
