LAS VAGEAS, NEVADA -- Brian Butch (right), the highly skilled 6-11, 225 pound power forward/center from Appleton West H.S. in Appleton, Wis., was injured on Monday afternoon at the adidas Big Time Tournament.
While playing in a game for his Fox Valley Skillz program in the Green Valley Auxiliary Gym, RivalsHoops.com's number 3 player in the class of 2003 got entangled with 6-10 Elijah Miller of the Fort Worth Lions. After a tussle for a loose ball, it was Butch that came crashing to the floor.
Butch left the game with what appeared to be a back injury. Fox Valley dropped an 81-67 decision to Fort Worth to open the Big Time with an 0-1 mark.
We hope to have complete details on Butch's situation within the next 24 hours in terms of his prognosis, so stay tuned to Rivalshoops.com for more details.
