Quinndary Weatherspoon’s sophomore season was almost derailed early on as the talented guard and the leading scorer for the Bulldogs injured his wrist and it was thought that he’d have to sit out for the season. It wasn’t long, however, until he returned to play.

And now, it looks like he’ll be returning to Starkville for another year (which will benefit the Bulldogs greatly) and he’s set to have surgery on his wrist (which will benefit him greatly). That is according to a report by Jon Rothstein.

Weatherspoon proceed to have quite the year, though it was probably overlooked due to the team’s lack of success. Q averaged 16.5 points, 5.1 rebounds, 1.8 assists, and 1.7 steals per game. These are all improved from the 12 points, 4.7 rebounds, 1.4 assists, and 1.4 steals per game from his freshman season.

Another offseason under his belt will likely go a long way to continuing to help Weatherspoon improve. Especially an offseason that’ll allow Q to get fully healthy.
