MBB | Oklahoma Sooner Isaiah Cousins Hit By Stray Bullet

Steve Dykes

As first reported by the Lower Hudson Journal News, Oklahoma Sooner guard, Isaiah Cousins, has been wounded by a stray bullet in his native Mt. Vernon, NY.

[The] former Mount Vernon basketball standout and current guard with the University of Oklahoma Sooners, was wounded Tuesday night when a errant bullet from one of two warring violent street gangs struck him in the back of the shoulder, police said.

Cousins is expected to survive his wounds without any surgery, Oklahoma basketball head coach Lon Kruger said of his starter. - Will Davis

Cousins is a vital part of what Lon Kruger has been building at Oklahoma and continues to develop into his role on the team. However, the expectation from Kruger is that he will rejoin the team in June without having to miss practices throughout the summer.

I've spoken to Isaiah and he is doing well. It truly was a matter of him being in the wrong place at the wrong time. He was simply talking to some friends when an outsider fired a shot. Everyone we've spoken to said they don't believe anyone in his group was a target. The bullet struck him in the back of the shoulder and doctors are not planning surgery. He should be healed in a few weeks and begin summer activities with the rest of the team in June. We're very thankful it wasn't worse than it was. - CBS Sports

Although an unfortunate event, we here at CCM wish Cousins nothing but the best!
