Spurs & Feathers: TeMarcus Blanton, a rare Injury, and an even more remarkable return
Nov. 10, 2015
The game won’t count and will soon be forgotten. That’s the nature of exhibitions: a 40-minute showcase that gives fans a first glimpse of their team, a happy blowout against an overmatched opponent, the stats inflated and largely meaningless.
South Carolina’s exhibition game against Allen will mean everything to TeMarcus Blanton.
A return to the game he loves. A reward for the seven-days-a-week rehab he had to endure. A tangible triumph over an injury so rare, USC’s medical staff couldn’t find a single precedent for it in a basketball player.
