Leading scorer Perry misses rest of UAlbany men’s basketball season – The Daily Gazette

UAlbany men’s basketball top-scorer De’Vondre Perry will miss the rest of the season, according to a social media post.

Perry posted on his Instagram account on Friday night that after “quite an emotional last few days for me and my support system” he was “devastated that I will miss the rest of the season due to injury and will have to have surgery.”

Perry, a graduate student who transferred from Temple to UAlbany during the offseason, failed to finish Wednesday’s game for the Great Danes and hobbled off with the help of a member of the coaching staff after the competition was over.

That evening, UAlbany head coach Dwayne Killings had said Perry may have picked up a knee injury. Early Friday afternoon, a few hours before Perry’s social media post, Killings said during a conference call with reporters that the 6ft-7 forward was questionable for tonight’s game against NJIT, but also that “we need to have some conversations … with him, and with our athletic training staff here today, and then it goes on.”

In 15 games this season, Perry averaged 12.8 points, five rebounds and 1.5 steals in 33.1 minutes per game.

The Great Danes play NJIT at 4pm today at SEFCU Arena.
