Monroe could return for start of Sun Belt schedule
By Tom D'Angelo | Tuesday, November 25, 2008, 11:20 AM

Florida Atlantic is working with the NCAA to determine the length of basketball forward Rodney Monroe’s suspension, but according to athletic director Craig Angelos, the Owls hope to have him back after seven to 10 games.

The issue that has kept Monroe from playing this season surfaced last May, according to the university. The expectations are he will return in time for the start of conference play, which is Dec. 16 at Denver. The game at Denver will be the 10th of the season for the Owls.

The Owls were 3-2 entering Tuesday’s game against James Madison in the consolation round of the NIT. Senior Paul Graham is leading the team in Monroe’s absence with 15.0 points per game and freshman Shavar Richardson is proving to be a solid signing by Mike Jarvis. Richardson is averaging 14.0 points off the bench.

Sophomore Xavier Perkins is among the team’s most improved players, averaging 11.8 points and 5.2 rebounds. Perkins, who had a career high 24 points in Monday’s loss at No. 24 Davidson, averaged 5.8 points as a freshman.

Monroe was the team’s leading scorer last season and is the program’s all-time leading rebounder.

Rodney Monroe will be backed up my Anthony Graham IV and John Tucker.  Freshman Jacob Richardson is also expected to make an impact.
