Each team brings one player to Pac-10 media day. The only exception today is Washington State, which had to leave start guard Taylor Rochestie behind.
Rochestie was injured during a collision while practicing in Pullman. And apparently coach Tony Bennett and staff feared the worst.
Fortunately, it seems the worst didn’t happen. X-rays to is injured shin came back negative, so while he missed a press conference, he may not miss any games.
Here’s what Bennett told the Media Day audience:
“(He) was supposed to be here at Media Day and was in a collision at the end of practice. He got X-rays on his shin – we were very concerned, but they came back negative and we think he’ll be fine.”
