Cam Ridley returning to practice as postseason begins

Posted March 7th, 2016


Senior center Cam Ridley, sidelined with a broken foot since December, received some positive news Monday, reports Ridley himself and coach Shaka Smart via the American-Statesman’s Kevin Lyttle.

Earlier in the morning, Ridley posted this tweet:

Smart said Ridley had a good report from his doctor today.

Smart told reporters in the Big 12 Conference call that Ridley will be back on the court this week. There was a possibility of his return for the postseason, but this is the first time he’ll return to action.
