Hilltoppers’ Star Bassey Remains on Track with Recovery

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – The good news keeps coming for Western Kentucky’s men’s basketball team, as Hilltoppers’ star center Charles Bassey continues to excel in his recovery from a left knee injury he suffered last December.

‘Tops head coach Rick Stansbury provided an update on the former five-star recruit, saying that Bassey has progressed incredibly well over the past few months and will be ready to go when full practices begin this fall.

“I think Charles is doing really well,” Stansbury says, “He’s going through all of our team workouts right now… I’ve been kind of surprised at where he’s at.”

If healthy, Bassey will anchor a Hilltoppers team that boasts a wealth of experience and scoring from last year’s squad.
