BC Loses Top Scorer

 

HARRISONBURG — Ronnie Thomas, the leading scorer for the Bridgewater College men’s basketball team, has a broken wrist and will be out until at least the Eagles’ season finale against Guilford on Feb. 16, according to the school.

 

Thomas, a junior guard, hurt his right (shooting) wrist in the first half against Eastern Mennonite University on Jan. 23. He played the rest of that game and three days later against Emory & Henry, before an X-ray revealed that he had a broken wrist, according to the school. He did not play in a 67-66 overtime win over Washington & Lee on Wednesday.

 

Thomas is averaging 11.8 points and three assists per game, both team highs for the Eagles (11-9 overall, 5-6 in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference).
