Knee injury briefly benches Eagles star

BRANDON - Brandon basketball star Zaronn Cann had his sore left knee scoped and is expected to be sidelined two to three weeks.

Cann, a 6-foot-6 forward who signed with South Florida, tore the ACL, MCL and meniscus in his left knee in January 2004.

He returned this season in limited playing action and averaged 14 points, almost five below last season's average.

"It's really not that serious," Brandon coach Mark Hermann said. "We just want to make sure that he gets back to 90 or a 100 percent before the playoffs start.

"The most important thing is Zaronn's health."

Brandon starting guard Kyle Williams also has missed playing time with a sprained ankle. But Cann's and Williams' absence hasn't slowed the Eagles, who have a 51-game win streak against county opponents.

"The absence of Cann will give the other players a good chance to see some action," Hermann said. "But I am worried about team chemistry when he comes back. Will Zaronn be rusty? How rusty?

"Who knows though, everything might work out just fine."
