EDIT: The MRI was negative and Dawson should be back shortly!
Junior forward Brandon Dawson suffered what appeared to be a knee injury last night in the closing seconds of Kennesaw State’s 66-54 loss to USC Upstate.
Upstate guard Ty Greene attacked the basket with around 3 seconds left in regulation, and the next image we all saw was Dawson on the ground clutching his knee and writhing in pain as time expired. I didn’t see exactly how it happened, but it didn’t look good to the untrained eye.

The injury comes the same day as Cole Hobbs leaving the team. If Dawson is unable to play Saturday afternoon against East Tennessee State, then the Owls are down to just 8 scholarship players available. As soon as we get more information, we will keep you apprised. We hope to see Brandon back on the court soon, and send him our well wishes.
