BOZEMAN — Despite suffering a sprained ankle last week, Harald Frey played 37 minutes for Montana State during its loss to rival Montana on Saturday.
Although the injured ankle limited his play, Frey was able to record 18 points, three steals and three assists. He almost led a late comeback for the Bobcats in their 59-54 loss.
Assistant coach Dan Russel assured the media that Frey would be good to go when MSU takes on Sacramento State on Thursday.
"You know, I think his ankle is sore, but he's fine," said Russel. "He's ready to go. That's about all I know."
Russell emphasized the fortitude and toughness that Frey has in order to play through his injury.
"It wouldn't matter if his ankle was broken, he's going to play," Russel said. "It's just a matter of him taking care of it, rehabbing it and trying to get to the next ballgame and managing it in practice a little bit, which we have done a pretty good job of. Like I've said, it's sore but he's fine and he'll be ready to rock on Thursday."
The Bobcats (14-13 overall, 8-8 Big Sky Conference) take on Sacramento State (14-12, 7-10) this Thursday night at 8:05 p.m.
