Gonzaga reserve center Robert Sacre, who has been sidelined for more than two months after re-injuring his foot, has decided not to try to return to the court this season. He’s eligible for a medical redshirt, so he’ll be a sophomore for the 2009-2010 season.
If Sacre had played in any of GU’s remaining games, he would have lost the opportunity for a medical redshirt.
“I feel it’s the best thing,” said Sacre, a 7-footer who played in five games in November and early December. “I feel good and I want to take the risk and do it, but the best thing for me right now is to redshirt.”
