It has been well over a year since UVA point guard, Malcolm Brogdon, saw playing time. After an injury sidelined him towards the end of his first year, the 6’5” point guard sat out his sophomore season to rehab. Now, he has been cleared for practice and is looking ahead to the 2013 season.
Brogdon caught up with us on The Best Seat in the House to discuss coming back from his injury, and what we can expect to see from Virginia Basketball this fall. According to Brogdon, “My injury really made me see how much of an opportunity this is to be back on the court, to be playing with my teammates, and I’m looking forward to it”. He’s not the only one looking forward to it. With two new freshmen, two players returning from redshirt seasons, and veterans having another year of training under their belts, competition is fierce for positions in the starting lineup. Brogdon remarked, “We have so much talent this year. The coaches have the freedom to play whoever they want and everyone can have an impact. I just think everyone will be fighting for their positions and I think that’s healthy”. With such deep talent on this years team, Brogdon even commented that, “I think we have a chance to be one of the better teams in the country”.
