UL’s Kobe Julien to Miss Remainder of Season
The Louisiana Ragin' Cajun men's basketball team received yet more bad news on the injury front on Friday.
The team announced that redshirt freshman forward Kobe Julien will miss the remainder of the 2019-20 season due to a right knee injury. He will undergo surgery on the knee next week.
Freshman guard Javonne Lowery is also sitting out the remainder of the 2019-2020 college basketball season with a knee injury.
The son of former Ragin' Cajun basketball great Wayne Julien, Julien redshirted last season, after having surgery on his left knee, after injuring it in his senior year of high school at Madison Prep.
Julien, who started the first eight games of the season before sitting out last week’s contest at Arizona State, was averaging 12.8 points and 5.5 rebounds per game.
A native of Baton Rouge, Julien was a standout at Madison Prep, being selected as the Outstanding Player on the Louisiana Sports Writers Association’s Class 3A All-State boys basketball team, while also being honored by the LABC as the 2018 Louisiana Class 3A High School Player of the Year.
We wish Kobe a complete and speedy recovery.
