Wes Miller and the Cincinnati Bearcats will have one of their key members available for Saturday afternoon’s game against Houston with senior guard CJ Fredrick returning from a hamstring injury.
According to a report from CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein, Fredrick will be dressed and available for the Bearcats’ 10th game in Big 12 Conference play
Cincinnati head coach Wes Miller spoke about the timeline for Fredrick’s return at a press conference on Tuesday afternoon and mentioned that he was hopeful to get the Kentucky native back on the court before the end of league play in March. While Fredrick is likely not 100% healthy, seeing him return to action is massive for a Cincinnati team looking to get over the hump in league play.
Fredrick has been an important part of Wes Miller’s squad this season averaging 7.5 points, 1.7 assists, and 1.3 rebounds per game in his fourth season of college basketball.
Coming out of high school, Fredrick was listed as a three-star prospect by the 247Sports index and checked in as the nation’s 223rd-ranked prospect. He also checked in as the 47th-ranked shooting guard in his class and the third-ranked player in the state of Kentucky.
For the first time since December 22nd, Fredrick will take the court for the Bearcats as the team tips off against the Houston Cougars on Saturday, February 10th at 3:00 PM CT on ESPN.
