Broncos tenacity to be tested again

The season hasn’t even started yet and already the Cal Poly Pomona men’s basketball team is racked with injuries.

It started over the summer when top recruit Kevin Ryan tore a knee up playing in open gym. Then the first week of practice San Bernardino native Donnelle Booker injured a knee. He is probably out for three months so he could return with the option of red-shirting there if he can’t.

Then Division I bounceback Walter Thompson injured his hand.

The hits keep on coming.

Coach Greg Kamansky said he only has eight healthy players. And that is counting a walk-on.

He thought he had all the pieces to contend in the always-tough CCAA. And he still might but others are going to have to step up early. Booker and Thompson should be able to return and the Broncos still have Larry Gordon.

And there is no better coach at making something out of nothing than Kamansky.
