The Cahokia Comanches hope to have senior guard Keenan Minor back in the lineup Wednesday when they play Marquette at the Jerseyville Mid-Winter Classic.
Cahokia coach Darian Nash said late Sunday that Minor, who did not play on Friday or Saturday, has a sore left knee and that the decision to rest the 6-foot-2 guard was for "rest" and "precautionary reasons."
"Keenan has had this before in the summer, where he plays a lot and it gets sore because he doesn't ice his knees. He's seen a doctor and the trainer at school and they don't see any structural damage,'' Nash said. "It was sore and he was limping a little so the decision was made to shut him down for a few days.
"We'll know for sure on Tuesday night, but we hope to have him back Wednesday when we play Marquette.''
Considered one of the top shooting guards in the state, Minor is the Comanches' leading scorer at 20.2 points per game and is one of the top 3-point shooters in the St. Louis-area.
Cahokia is 16-2 for the season and ranked third in the Class 3A state poll.
