Boys' basketball: W.T. Woodson's Schoof has surgery

I've been in touch with W.T. Woodson's John Schoof -- a junior guard-forward who underwent surgery on Friday after severely injuring his left ankle last week.

Schoof, who suffered the injury with less than five minutes left in practice last Monday as a teammate dove for a loose ball and rolled over his left ankle, said that doctors think he could be playing by February.

"I had the surgery on Friday and everything went well," said Schoof. "The doctor ended up not having to put any screws in my ankle which is good. Instead the doctor put in two bands to hold the bones in place while the ligaments heal. If I had screws put in, I would've had to have another operation in 10 weeks to get them removed but the bands do not have to be removed so I can begin rehab sooner than we first thought. I'll be in a cast for the next five weeks and then I'll start rehabing as hard as I can once I get that off. So it went a little better than expected, but the doctor is confident I'll be playing by February."

Woodson lost 60-36 to Paul VI in this past weekend's Red Jenkins Tip-off Classic. Guard Max Lenox, one of the Northern Region's top guards, was held to three points in the loss.

"They're a very good defensive team. If we make shots we're right there...It was tough," said W.T. Woodson Coach Doug Craig. "Can [defenses] double Max every time he touches the ball, when John's on the floor? Probably not. I think that's what we're going to see now."
