I have had the distinct pleasure of speaking to CJ on a number of occasions over the past four years – be it at Meet and Greets, Annual Banquets or before and after games. Each time I walk away thinking to myself, “This guy is too good to be true” and how lucky we are as fans and alumni to have him represent us the way he does. My prayers do indeed go out to this fine young man. May he enjoy a speedy and full recovery followed by success in his chosen careers of professional basketball and journalism.
VCU Coach Shaka Smart’s comments after the game……..
“Watching him after the game, he understands that he’s going to be back,” Smart said. “He understands that he’s got a lot of basketball ahead of him. I don’t know how long he’s going to be out but hopefully he comes back as soon as he can this year, because they’ve got a heck of a team.”
“With him in the lineup, they can literally beat anyone in the country.”
