Eargle will play Saturday with a protective mask

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – After missing the last two games with a broken nose that required surgery, Damian Eargle expects to be back in the lineup on Saturday when the Youngstown State men's basketball team plays their final regular season home game.

Eargle will wear a protective mask to protect his nose and practiced with it for the first time on Wednesday.

He's never missed a game due to an injury and admits the mask will be tough getting used to.

"I've never played with a mask before. But as soon as I get used to shooting and running around with it I should be fine," Eargle said.

Coach Jerry Slocum thinks that Eargle will be fine after he gets used to the mask. Slocum said, "I'm hoping with three good days of practice, he just got it this morning, that he'll be more comfortable."

"I better start on senior night," Eargle said. "I'm planning on starting and playing a lot of major minutes."
